Buhari vs Atiku: Arewa youths react to PDP’s decision to return to Supreme Court, advise party

The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has warned the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, against its decision to return to the Supreme Court to seek reversal of its judgment that upheld the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the 2019 presidential election.

The main opposition party had reportedly decided to return to the court to demand review of the presidential election ruling that upheld the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and in other States, the APC won.

They want the apex court to declare former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar winner of the election conducted in February last year and also revisit judgments on governorship elections in Osun, Kano, Kaduna, and Katsina States.

However, the AYCF, speaking on Wednesday through its National President, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, described the decision as a waste of time, adding that nothing but failure will come out of it.

According to Shettima, “Rather than wasting their time in all that perhaps I’ll advise them to begin to put their house in order.

“There’s no time for all this considering the fact that we have a system, though it is within their constitutional rights to do it, let us not just waste our energy on nothing.

“Let them begin now to put their house in order. There are a lot of issues. If they can unite themselves, they stand a chance to win the 2023 election considering the way the APC government is failing woefully.

“My advice to them is to come together and reorganize themselves instead of running the party like a student union organization. Their decision to return to the Supreme Court will be futile. It won’t be fruitful at all. They’ll just go there and fail woefully.”
