The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) on Sunday warned Nigerians against allowing Ahmed Lawan, to become the President of the ninth .

The AYCF linked the support Lawan is currently getting from some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as related to the secret pursuit of personal ambitions ahead of 2023 general elections.

In a statement to DAILY POST on Sunday by Yerima Abbas Shettima, the President of AYCF, the forum fingered Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the APC, and Nasir El-Rufai, the of Kaduna state, as being behind Lawan’s ambition in a desperate move ahead of 2023 polls.

The statement added, “We advise the Tinubus and Elrufais of this world to shove aside any desperate move on 2023 and allow a level-playing field for all political offices.

“No one should hide behind any political party to turn Nigerians into mere manipulable pawn. That will be undemocratic imposition and totally unacceptable,” Shettima said.

The group recalled how it predicted that Senator Danjuma Goje would step down when he is pressured into submission using his pending case at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

“We also declared that he could alternatively be forced to step down from the race in exchange for his freedom from EFCC’s hot chase,” it stated.

“We are happy to inform all Nigerian progressives that we have been vindicated in all the public declarations we made recently on the contentious seat of the Senate presidency.

“It is obvious that the desperation to make the road to Senate presidency smooth for Tinubu’s acolyte (Sen Lawan), ’s foot-soldiers, especially Governor Nasir El-Rufai are coming up with a new narrative to pull a blind wool over our eyes.

“The Kaduna governor is trying to sell a dummy to Nigerians that the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) has done the needful regarding Goje’s case with the EFCC.

“And we ask: Which attorney-general, when all ministers have since resigned?

“What is the meaning of taking a case that was under investigation by an independent body, to an attorney-general who is not the in the court handling the Senator Goje case?

“These are questions begging for answers and we are tempted to assume that the EFCC is about to be hindered from continuing with the case because Chief Tinubu, who has been pushing Buhari harder, has vested interest to do with his 2023 ambition,” AYCF claimed.

The state APC legal adviser, Barrister Adegoke Ogunsola made this known on Thursday, at the State Secretariat of the party, during a press conference organized by the State Executive Council members.
Ogunsola said that “There is unity in Osun APC and there is no faction, noting that some people suspected to be disgruntled members of the main opposition, PDP, are misleading the public with lies, misinformation, and falsehood to believe that Osun APC is factionalized and not united”.
According to him, “Osun APC always operates within the ambit of the party’s constitution, other relevant laws, and directives from the National Headquarters of the party.
“We are hereby informing the public that the news that Osun APC is factionalized into both Gov. Gboyega Oyetola’s camp and Rauf Aregbesola’s camp, is an utter falsehood and misinformation from the pit of hell and those wishing disintegration of Osun APC are members of the main opposition”.
The party said, “It is a shame that the former , Ogbeni Aregbesola is sponsoring the Secretary of the party, Alhaji Razaq Salinsile against the State Chairman, Prince Adegboyega Famodun, the duo has a cordial relationship, and we are endowed with resourceful elders such as Chief Bisi Akande, Chief Sola Akinwumi and many others who will intervene and settle any dispute if there is any”.
