Buhari is aged and can not return power to the North – Arewa Youth Integrity Forum

A socio-cultural group, the Arewa Youth Integrity Forum, has raised alarm over plans by some cabals in the All Progressive Congress, APC, to shortchange the north by presenting Gen. Buhari (rtd) who they described as ‘’weak and running out of age’’ to pilot the affairs of this nation.

The coordinator of the group, Mallam Hamid Usman in a media chat with journalists in Abuja last weekend, tendered their displeasure over the allegation that the APC’s political calculation is to pave way for Pastor Osibango, who is much younger, active and belongs to the cabal, to take over power thereby making it possible for power to return to the South again for another eight years.

His words: ‘’Buhari has been surrounded by hawks and caged in a dungeon which indicates that nothing good will come back to the north in the next eight years owing to recent activities in the APC, showing the fact that the man (Buhari) cannot call the shots by himself if elected as President.

‘’In the first place they went for a candidate who claimed that he couldn’t afford his nomination form; yet he is still their choice because he has no stamina of himself which is a better deal to finance him to power and easily push him out of power barely 6 months into the tenure which is worse than what happened to Yar’Adua’’, he alleged.

Speaking further, Usman lamented that the cabals have abandoned energetic young aspirants and opted for an old weakling, knowing full well that age and health are very important to the discharging of national duties.
