Group warns on use of ‘Arewa plat­form’ for dev­il­ish mis­sions

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Mustapha M. Mustapha

The Arewa Youth Grand Al­liance (AYGA) has vowed to re­sist any at­tempt by the Pres­i­dent of Arewa Youth Con­sul­ta­tive Fo­rum (AYCF), Yarima Shat­tima, and oth­ers to use the name of Arewa for dev­il­ish mis­sion.

The AYGA Pres­i­dent, Al­haji Idris Inuwa, in a state­ment yes­ter­day, in Abuja, up­braided Yarima for al­legedly say­ing Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari and for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Atiku Abubakar would not be con­sid­ered in 2019.

Inuwa said they were aware of Yarima’s spon­sors, who were all out to dis­credit two of the North’s finest politi­cians - Pres­i­dent Buhari and ex-VP Atiku Abubakar - to achieve their sin­is­ter po­lit­i­cal mo­tives ahead of 2019.

Inuwa warned Mr Yarima and his spon­sors to de­sist from “reck­less and un­guarded ut­ter­ances against north­ern lead­ers and el­ders who have sac­ri­ficed so much for our fu­ture.

“We are com­pelled to state that Mr Yarima is de­ceived by the eu­pho­ria that trailed their in­fa­mous ‘quit no­tice’ given to Ig­bos in the North, an ac­tion de­lib­er­ately de­signed to desta­bi­lize the na­tion, thereby see­ing him­self as an emerg­ing hero that could speak for the North.
