…As Adebanjo Blasts Tinubu For Yoruba’s Woes
Alhaji Mohammed Abdulrahman who is the secretary-general of the Arewa Consultative Forum has warned that any attempt by the north to retain power in 2019 may lead to disaster.
In an interview with The Sun, the member of the National Executive Committee said Nigeria belongs to everyone and the north must stop giving the impression that it owns the country.
He noted that President Muhammadu Buhari came into power on the basis of an alliance and called on the north to respect it.
He said: “We must not lose sight of the fact that it was an alliance that brought him in.
“The North and Buhari must get serious and behave themselves.
Nigeria does not belong to the North because if you maintain the position, grandstanding that the North is powerful in Nigeria, you are wasting your time and Nigeria would collapse and crash.
“Why is the North asking for eight years? It is because of incapability to put in a leader.
“After Buhari, the best is Buhari. I am telling you now; go and write it down.
“The best the North can ever offer is Buhari. He failed three times woefully until the South West came and they had an alliance.
“Why are they trying to abuse that alliance?
“Four years is enough for the North. Let us respect each other.”
He said 2019 is for the southwest and the Action Congress of Nigeria which formed the alliance for the 2015 presidency.
Meanwhile, Chief Ayo Adebanjo who was a close associate of Chief Obafemi Awolowo blamed the national leader of the APC, Chief Bola Tinubu for the suffering of Yorubas.
In an interview with The Punch, the elder statesman reacted to the statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that the World Bank should shift its focus to the north.
Adebanjo said it was an indication that President Buhari has always been for the north and that Yoruba people are already regretting voting for him.
