The President of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF), a coalition of youth groups in the 19 northern states, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, has said that the entrance of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar into the 2019 presidential contest has changed the political calculation in the country, pointing out that Atiku is the game changer.
In the case of Buhari, the incompetence is very obvious. You do not need to be told. In terms of fighting corruption, zero. In terms of tackling insecurity in the nation, it is zero. The threat to our national security today leaves much to be desired because everywhere in Nigeria today there is insecurity. If care is not taken one day we will run into anarchy.
Everything about this government is not normal. Where is the capacity here? No capacity because a lot is happening and the government cannot be decisive, state what to do and stand by it. They say something today tomorrow you will hear another story.
There is lack of coordination even among the security agencies. In terms of fighting corruption, if you succeed in leaving a party today, any party, if they get any information that you are corrupt and reported to the EFCC and you defect to the APC you are seen as a saint. Look at the massive corruption going on under this government.
Look at those characters who succeeded in the last 16 years who have suddenly become actors in the APC. Today, they are the fate deciders. They decide the fate of over 180 million Nigerians. This is not right. This must be resisted by all Nigerians. This is a clarion call that all Nigerians must put their hands on deck and stand by democracy.
