The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF), has warned against any attempt by President Muhammadu Buhari to push for a third term in office.

Yerima Shettima, the AYCF President General, in an interview with Daily Post, warned that they would mobilise and ensure that such move does not “see the light of the day.”

The AYCF revelation is coming following claims that President Buhari may push for a third term.


There have been calls by certain groups for Buhari to extend his tenure beyond 2023.

However, the AYCF President warned that such a move would suffer the same fate as that of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.

He said: “We are aware that certain things are going on in this government. We are aware that the issue of third term agenda is ongoing but the government has not come out openly to say that there was such plan or not.

“The rumour of the third term is everywhere and it will die just like Obasanjo’s third term bid because we are determined to mobilise and ensure that the issue of third-term does not see the light of the day.”
