A coalition of Northern Youths have berated the Yorubas for supporting the separatist move of the South East as well as backstabbing.
This was the summation of the meeting of Arewa Youths held at Daura in Katsina State where they also said that the north must complete its full eight year.
They said they would resist any move to make Osinbajo the president, saying it would amount to betrayal of goodwill.
According to the youths in a statement signed by Muhammed Shehu and Tanko Abdullahi, “We shall resist every of such plans and ensure by all means possible, that the north completes its eight-year tenure and possibly even continue after then, and that the federal structure of Nigeria as it currently is, is not tampered with by secession mongers and their collaborators.”
Speaking further, the group said that it was the goodwill of the north that made M.K.O Abiola supposedly win the June 12, 1993 polls.
“May we remind the Yoruba that without the willingness and magnanimity of the north, there was no way Abiola could have purportedly won that election, and that all the Yoruba have now as assets in the south west, especially Lagos, were given to them by our leaders out of our own usual magnanimity,” the coalition said.
“However, time and time again, the Yoruba have always turned their back on us whenever their support is needed. They have chosen to pitch tent with the Igbo this time around just to spite us, but we shall not succumb to their antics.”
