- The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) has spoken against the alleged 2023 presidency bid of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu

- The AYCF said that Tibunu should not waste his time and effort in his alleged plan to become the nation's next president come 2023

- The group on Monday, May 20, said that it will do everything in it can to ensure the All Progressives Congress (APC)'s national leader's plan to come to nothing

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was on Monday, May 20, told by the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) to do away with any idea of becoming the president of Nigeria in 2023.

The AYCF, in its statement on Monday, May 20, through its national president, Comrade Yerima Shettima, said that it will never support Tinubu's lofty ambition because already the southwest is enjoying enviable appointments from the federal government, Nigerian Tribune reports.

Shettima in the statement said that “through the total dominance and manipulation of political and economic power, the South- West has badly shortchanged the North, making it’s people irrelevant in the running of government for more than four years.”

Shettima added: “There is no way after cornering all the juicy Federal Government appointments and skewing development projects in favour of the South- West anyone will dare approach the North with the issue of seeking for the presidency in 2023. That will be totally unacceptable.”

The AYCF boss went on to say that Shettima it will make use of all legal means to subdue schemes by Tinubu, whose aim, according to the group, was the 2023 presidency.

He maintained that the APC's national leader's bid will be a waste of efforts, adding that it “is no longer possible because the country belongs to all of us.”

He said: “We’re not in the Banana Republic and the world has moved on from the era of political impunity.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the AYCF had cautioned some southwest political leaders not to get involved in what it described as a new plot to unleash the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and other anti-corruption agencies to intimidate Senate president, Bukola Saraki.

This was contained in a statement sent to Legit.ng by AYCF national president, Yerima Shettima, in which he accused the Lagos-based political leader of the southwest and "some of his cronies in the corridors of power of planning to embarrass the Senate president, using the government's anti-corruption agencies and based on politically-motivated charges.

"Much as the AYCF supports the war against corruption, we will resist any subtle attempt to hide behind politics to intimidate our sons in positions of authority."
