Arewa Youth: The North Has Four More Years To Rule Nigeria after Buhari
The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has said clearly that a rotating presidency in 2023, as proposed by Southern Governors, is not realistic.
After President Muhammadu Buhari’s term ends in 2023, the organization claims that the North still has four years to control Nigeria. AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, revealed this in an exclusive interview with Daily Post on Thursday, July 15.
Former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan governed Nigeria for 14 years in the South’s favor, while late Musa Yar’Adua and Buhari would have reigned for 10 years in 2023, leaving the North with four years remaining.
Remember that the Southern governors asked that Nigeria’s next president be elected in 2023 from the region. The governors made the decision during a meeting held recently in Lagos State.
AYCF, on the other hand, claims that the North has not been treated fairly in the country’s affairs. It argues that such choices by Southern governors cannot be used to threaten the North.
“That is their own opinion, which is not obligatory on Nigerians and Northerners,” the statement continues.
“We live in a democracy, and it must be exercised in a way that is inclusive to all; as far as we are concerned, it is not binding on anybody, and no one will follow such a decision.
“If we’re talking about justice, it wasn’t served to us as far as we’re concerned, because there’s no way Obasanjo would have had eight years uninterrupted, Yar’Adua only had two years, and Jonathan took over as acting president in 2009, and Jonathan should not have contested based on the arrangement.
“North was supposed to have eight years of uninterrupted service, but there was a break due to natural or unforeseen circumstances.
