The Arewa Youth Council (AYC) has expressed strong support for Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s plan to host the scheduled annual Bola Tinubu’s Colloquium in Kano State Government House describing Arewa Youth Consultative Forum’s (AYCF)attacks on the Governor as provocative, ill-advised and apparently sponsored.
Spokesman of the Arewa Youth Council, Mohammed Hussaini, in a statement in Abuja on Sunday affirmed that the forum was shocked to read statements from Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) against the hosting of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Colloquium in Kano State Government House.
The group disssociated itself completely from the position of the AYCF.
“We reserve the right as critical stakeholders in the Northern Nigerian Project to dissociate our people from the strange position of the AYCF.
“As a people and as a movement formed to ensure, contribute and propel the development of our region, we hereby restate our unalloyed support for any personality in the mould of Asiwaju Tinubu who means so well for the North”.
“It is impossible for us to be party to a sponsored campaign of calumny against such people that desire the well-being of our region just for political gains,” the group added.
