Presidency: Northern Youths Declare War On Cabal. The Northern Youth Leaders Forum has upheld Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to play out his sacred obligations without President Muhammadu Buhari.
A socio-political group, Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF), yesterday declared war on the cabal allegedly working to undermine the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
It said the cabal would not stop Osinbajo from becoming the substantive president if President Muhammadu Buhari resigned or declared unfit to continue in office due to ill-health.
Addressing a press conference in Abeokuta, Ogun State, the NYLF National President, Comrade Elliot Afiyo, noted that the fate of Nigeria should not be determined by any selfish individual or group of individual.
Afiyo, who was flanked by the group’s Political Secretary at the event, Alhaji Abdullahi Tijani, and the Women Leader, Hajiya Hassana Iliya, said members were in the state to consult with some opinion leaders and interest groups on the road to 2019.
He expressed concern over reports that members of a cabal met in Saudi Arabia and discussed how to stop Osinbajo from becoming president if circumstances compelled the need on the country.
Afiyo stated that though the group had prayed fervently for Buhari’s quick recovery to enable him to complete his tenure, Osinbajo cannot be stopped by anybody from making progress according to constitutional provisions.
He said: “Nigeria and Nigerians have reached a stage where a group of few and selfish individuals should no longer be allowed to determine their destiny.
“We want to state that no individual or cabal can stop Professor Yemi Osinbajo from becoming substantive president if President Muhammadu Buhari resigns or declared unfit to continue in office.”
