Presidency will remain in northern Nigeria till 2023 – Arewa youths

Shettima Yerima, leader of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, has maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari would not be the sole candidate of Northern Nigeria in the 2019 Presidential election.

Yerima made the assertion while dismissing the statement credited to Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, Paul Unongo, suggesting that the North has endorsed Buhari, ahead of 2019.

Yerima, maintains that the presidency remains in the northern region till 2023 and it is up to it to present one of its own to fill the slot

In a statement, the AYCF leader said Unongo lacks the requisite authority to speak for the north on any matter as his antecedents are full of inconsistency and lack decorum.

Yerima said, “It is quite unthinkable that a person with such little grasp of diplomacy should think himself as a worthy successor to the respectable chairmanship of the NEF vacated by the late Danmasanin Kano.

“We all know that Danmasani was the convener of the NEF and a noble leader that never steered the group in the path of partisanship.

“The leadership of the NEF in the time of the Danmasani has never been so biased and considered every northerners as its own and treated them equally,”

“Unongo therefore must have said the things he said out of turn,” he said.
