The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has shocked President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of 2019 General Election by endorsing the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The President of AYCF, Yerima Shettima revealed that the emergence of Abubakar as a presidential candidate of the PDP was a good thing for Nigeria.
Speaking with journalists, Shettima also stressed that the former Vice President should emerge victorious in 2019 because the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed Nigerians.
He vowed to ensure that the current All Progressives Congress, APC-led administration does not stay in office beyond 2019.
Shettima said, “For us in AYCF, we have said it over and over that Buhari’s administration has failed Nigerians and we have passed vote of no confidence on the current administration before now, and to that effect we can’t trust this administration anymore.
We are saying that we demand a total new order and for us, the emergence of Atiku is a good thing for Nigeria and we have to look towards that direction.
“I will canvass other ethnic nationalities and groups to ensure that the tenure of this administration comes to an end.
“We will ensure that Buhari’s administration does not exceed beyond 2019, we will vote them out.”
