..Threatens stopping the embarrassment, wastage, denigration

By Gabriel Udeh, Kaduna

The Youth Wing of Arewa Consultative consultative Forum (AYCF) has kicked against plans by Governor Ganduje of Kano State to use Government House for Bola Tinubu’s birthday, describing the plan as “an insult on symbol of authority of government of Kano.

A statement signed by the AYCF National President Alhaji Yerima Shettima decried that the body took exception to the choice of Kano Government House as the only place in the North for celebrating Tinubu’s birthday, adding that the All progressive Congress national leader was mute when northerners were been killed in Southwest

“A man who kept quiet while Northerners were under attack in Oyo and some parts of the Southwest”, it stated

While people from Ganduje’s Northern Nigeria were being maimed, Tinubu kept mute even when Northerners’ assets were being destroyed in some parts of the Southwest “in the guise of hunting down imaginary herdsmen he could not even condemn the violence. Yet this is shamelessly the special guest for Ganduje in Kano Government House.”

The young group lamented that Kano is not only the financial nerve centre of the North but also “the symbol of the region’s cultural and historical pride, “up to today and we won’t fold our arms and watch this pillar of the North turned into a birthday party venue for people who are not officials of any government in the country”.

The AYCF asked Governor Ganduje “not to allow himself to be used as the only governor in the North to avail a whole symbol of authority – the Government House for a private citizen’s birthday party, something no Lagos State Governor has ever done to even the most respected politicians or private individuals from the North.

“Why can’t the governor of Lagos State, where Tinubu has a lot influence do so inside the Government House, Alausa?

“Has Governor Ganduje ever hosted Aminu Kano’s remembrance in Government House? And if Governor Ganduje is so desperate about pleasing Tinubu, either as associate or political godfather what stops him from using event centers and Stadium in Kano Municipal that could be more conveniently used for such purposes? Why must it be Government House?”.

The group then declared that “We wish to advise Governor Ganduje to drop this primitive idea of hosting a private individual inside Kano Government House, or else we will apply all legitimate means of stopping this embarrassing wastage and denigration of the official abode of a Governor for fun.
