- Northern Youths
Northern Youths under the auspices of Arewa Youth Council (AYC) and other Civil Society Organisations have declared the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar as an enemy of the masses.
The youths told reporters at Arewa House on Wednesday categorically that Atiku lacks empathy and human feeling for kicking against the extension of the deadline for the old and new naira swap despite the untold hardship the policy has caused Nigerians.
They called on all Northerners and Nigerians to reject the candidacy of Alh Atiku Abubakar for what they called ‘his lack of empathy for the suffering of Nigerians’.
Director General, Media and Publicity of AYC, Bilal Tijjani Paki said: “While this is happening, many Nigerians of good conscience have risen to condemn the draconian policy. Some governors have approached the Supreme Court seeking an injunction restraining the CBN from rejecting the old naira notes, which was graciously granted but arrogantly violated by the CBN and the Federal Government. This we strongly believe is an invitation to anarchy. If the government begins to disobey lawful court orders, she is teaching her citizens to follow suit, if it continues, we won’t have a country to call ours someday.
