The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has kicked against claims that President Muhammadu Buhari may extend his tenure beyond May 29, 2023.

AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima told DailyPost that Buhari should emulate former President Goodluck Jonathan, who addressed insecurity, a few weeks to the general elections.

The Arewa youths leader warned that Nigerians would resist any attempt by Buhari to extend his tenure beyond 2023.

Shettima said: “I do not think the president will descend so low to that extent, and of course if he attempts such, Nigerians will resist it because the constitution does not allow it.

“If there are any security issues that will warrant that, they should quickly address it before the 2023 elections.

“We have seen instances where Jonathan took three weeks to fight insurgency so elections could be held, so if that is the case, we still have a long term before the election

“. I’m sure Buhari can do the mobilization and order that anyone found wanting, especially bandits and terrorists, are dealt with.

“Once this is done, we can use one year to address and forge ahead with the election. For the president or anyone to say due to insecurity, he would sit behind and defy the constitution is insane. We run a constitutional democracy, and we are not in Banana Republic; Nigeria is a sovereign nation.”
