As the controversy surrounding the health of President Muhammadu Buhari continues to rage, National President, Arewa Youth Forum, (AYF) Alhaji Gambo Ibrahim Gujungu has warned the south west to stop the game they are playing in the interest of peace.
Gujungu said the north and especially the youths are aware of the plan of the south west to push out President Buhari through a campaign of calumny, using his health as a yardstick.
He also revealed that the leadership of the forum has visited President Buhari in London, corroborating the statement by the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo that Mr President is recovering fast and will soon be back to the country.
Speaking to newsmen in Kaduna on Friday, Gambo said, the west is using the duo of Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose and Femi Fani Kayode to champion their cause, insisting the north will resist any attempt to take over power from them now or in 2019.
The youth leader then challenged the Ekiti state governor to produce his eleven pictures of the president or further refrain from any commentary on the health of Mr. President.
His words, "These South west people think that we don’t understand the politics they are playing, we do but we will shock them when the times. There are using Ekiti state Governor Ayodele Fayose and Former Avaition Minister Femi Fani Kayode to pitch the rest of the country against the north and Mr. President in particular, we understand the game but we are waiting and watching.
"You know am the National President of AYF the umbrella body of all youths in the north and many of you are aware of our efforts to stabilize the country. Mostly against this recent call by some of our brothers to expel people of the south east. But some people want to show us that they understand the game of politics more than us. But they are in for a surprise.
"Let me reveal to you guys that after our recent meeting in Kaduna here, a delegation was sent to London. I led that delegation because we wanted to to know the truth of the situation. We met with the president and he told us some things. All I can say now is our President would soon be back and people would witness drastic changes in the country. Many people will be surprise when he comes I can tell you that.
"Am challenging Governor Fayose to immediately release his eleven pictures or resign as the governor of his state for telling Nigerians lies unbecoming of a Governor. This man has been peddling lies to gullible people thinking he is criticizing the president. This is a challenge from me to him and I can tell you he would do nothing because all his claims are tissue of lies.
"Also I want it on record that youths from the north will not accept what happened during the late Umaru Musa Yar’adua presidency. In 2919 the north must complete its 8 years. This region can no longer continue to be taken for a ride, we will never accept that."
