The Arewa Youths have told the President-elect, Ahmed Bola Tinubu not to betray the North West as he’s not known for ‘use and dump’.
The group made the call on Thursday at the backdrop of criticisms traíling the micro-zoning of presiding officers of the 10th National Assembly.
They reminded the president-elect that it’s only the North West that gave him 30 percent votes in the just concluded presidential election out of the six geographical zones of the country.
Addressing journalists at a peaceful protest in solidarity with Senator Abdulaziz Yari for the position of Senate President, the Arewa Youths said they were astonished when they read in the news that the President-elect was supporting a South-South candidate for Senate President rather than the North-west that gave him the most votes in the election.
Addressing journalists, the zonal coordinator of the group, Dr. Tanko Abdullahi, who was represented by the President of Northern Youths Council, Useni Abubakar, cautioned the President-elect not to allow sycophants to decieve him.
He said: “We assure the President-elect that the North-west support for him was as a result of our belief that the President-elect is a man who believes that Political loyalty can be paid back with political loyalty.
“We do not know the President-elect as a use and dump leader hence we want to remind the Senator Tinubu should not allow Nigerians begin to see him from the angle of having used and dumped the good people of North-west Nigeria.”
