Gambo Ibrahim Gunjungu, President of the Arewa Youth Forum (AYF), has vowed that they will declare the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, “anti-north” if he continues with his push for Senator Ahmad Lawan to emerge Senate President.

The northern youth leader also claimed that Tinubu had no influence in President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term victory, adding that the influence of the former Lagos Governor was going down.

Gunjungu, who was reminded in an interview with Sun that President Buhari could not have been president in 2015 without Tinubu, said, “The year 2015 is in the past. What about 2019 general elections? What votes did he bring to Buhari?

“He supported Buhari financially, or in which aspect are you talking about?


“I hope you have the statistics of the votes, which Buhari got. Would you say that what Buhari got is what he expected from Lagos?

“Tinubu’s influence is going down. Let him understand that and that he should not try to be in control of the National Assembly.

“It is ok that he helped in the merger that birthed the APC but let him not take charge of the National Assembly.

“We are not looking at Buhari as only a Northerner; our position is that they should allow the National Assembly to elect their leaders.

“If Tinubu continues with this Ahmad Lawan agitation, we will declare him as anti-North and we will wait for him in 2023 if only he is planning to contest.

“It is very simple. 2023 is around the corner and we know all his consultations. We will wait for him.”
