Senate Presidency: Don’t betray North-West, Arewa youths tell Tinubu
The President-elect, Ahmed Bola Tinubu has been told not to betray the North West.
The group said on Thursday at the backdrop of criticisms traíling the micro-zoning of presiding officers of the 10th National Assembly, that they were aware of the allegation against Tinubu of ‘use and dump.’
They said the president-elect should be conscious 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.
The Arewa youths, who were fronting for Senator Abdulaziz Yari for the position of Senate President, 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 highest votes in the election.
The zonal coordinator of the group, Dr. Tanko Abdullahi, who was represented by the President of Northern Youths Council, Useni Abubakar, warned the President-elect not to allow sycophants to decieve him.
According to him, “We assure the President-elect that the North-West support for him was as a result of our belief that the President-elect rewards 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.”
