In respect to the leadership tussle for the 9th National Assembly, Gambo Ibrahim Gunjungu, the president of Arewa Youth Forum, on Friday stated that they will declare the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, anti-north if he continues to support the candidacy of Ahmad Lawan.
Gunjungu further stated that the former Governor of Lagos State, has no hand in the second term victory of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The President of the forum added that the influence of the APC leader is going down.
Gunjungu in an interview with the Sun stated that the emergence of President Buhari happened with the help of Tinubu in 2015, “The year 2015 is in the past. What about 2019 general elections? What votes did he bring to Buhari?”
“He supported Buhari financially, or in which aspect are you talking about?”
“I hope you have the statistics of the votes, which Buhari got. Would you say that what Buhari got is what he expected from Lagos?”
“Tinubu’s influence is going down. Let him understand that and that he should not try to be in control of the National Assembly.”
“It is ok that he helped in the merger that birthed the APC but let him not take charge of the National Assembly.”
“We are not looking at Buhari as only a Northerner; our position is that they should allow the National Assembly to elect their leaders.”
“If Tinubu continues with this Ahmad Lawan agitation, we will declare him as anti-North and we will wait for him in 2023 if only he is planning to contest.”
“It is very simple. 2023 is around the corner and we know all his consultations. We will wait for him.”
