Some youths in the northern part of Nigeria under the aegis of
Northern Youths Movement (NYM) have accused All Progressives Congress
(APC) leader, Senator Bola Tinubu of being the brain behind the call
for the resignation of President Mohammadu Buhari, saying Tinubu was
gradually unfolding his actual agenda to hijack the presidency.
A group, which called itself The PDP Media Watchdog, had reacted to
the statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari, declaring and
admitting that his age will affect his performance rate as President
of Nigeria by urging the president to resign from office.
Already, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had disowned the group,
saying it was unknown to the party and had no connection whatsoever
with the party at any level.
In its reaction, the NYM in a statement signed by its Protem Chairman,
Mallam Ishaya Jato alleged that the press statement credited to The
PDP Media Watchdog actually emanated from Tinubu’s media office in
The northern youths said the statement was released to gauge the pulse
of the public on Tinubu’s larger agenda of installing his crony, Prof
Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) as the president of Nigeria.
NYM disclosed that it was part of the agenda to cut short Buhari’s
tenure that Tinubu desperately wanted to hijack the Senate and House
of Representatives by installing his cronies as Senate President,
Deputy Senate President, Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of
“The comment made in South Africa by President Buhari, regarding his
age was deliberately hyped by Tinubu’s hatchet men in the media and
the call for the president’s registration was aimed at gauging the
reaction of Nigerians.
“Also, we are aware that Tinubu’s camp is working on the possibility
of President Buhari not completing his term, either due to failing
health or death.
“However, we youths in north are aware of his (Tinubu) plot against
the north and we wish to tell him that we are watching.
“He has failed in his attempt to hijack the National Assembly and use
it to impeach President Buhari and we want to assure Tinubu and his
cronies that President Buhari will not only complete his tenure, he
will go for second term,” NYM said.
What is the reason for Buhari to resign. Yorubas are good in such ridiculous manipulative act.
Well it seems to me that APC is sole proprietor business owned by Tinubu. What a shame of such naive party that promote viciousness at all cost. When Satan is in the house, trouble and confusion all the time. Since Buhari has been sworn in he must be allowed to discharge his duties period.
