For alleged moves to turn Government House ,Kano into venue for the birthday party of National leader of the APC,BolaAhmed Tinubu,the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum(AYCF) has cautioned Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State and advised him to move the event elsewhere .
“The plan is an insult on the symbol of authority that the Government House has been to the Kano people for decades,” they said.
A statement issued by the AYCF National President, Alhaji Yerima Shettima yesterday, frowned at the choice of Kano Government House as the only place in the North for celebrating Tinubu’s birthday.
“He kept quiet while Northerners were under attack in Oyo and some parts of the Southwest,” they said.
“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,” they alleged.
“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,” they said.
“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.”
