The Arewa Youth Integrity Forum (AYIF), has frowned at the ‘unholy romance’ between the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode as well as the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu. 

The youth group threatened to stop support for Atiku because his alliance with the Fani-Kayode and the pro-Biafra group leader would destabilise Nigeria. 

Recall that Kanu, who went missing since September following the invasion of his house by troops of the Operation Python Dance, was spotted in Jerusalem, Israel praying at the Wailing Wall. 

Few minutes after his reappearance, Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the PDP took to his Twitter handle to announce that he spoke with Kanu and he had agreed to work with the PDP to oust President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019. 

Reacting to the development, Adamu Adamu, the National President of AYIF, said Atiku would lose the support of northern youths if he failed to distance himself from the union. 

Adamu wondered why Atiku, who is eyeing the nation’s number one seat could get the support of an outlawed organisation like IPOB or its leader who has been declared wanted by the Nigerian security operatives. 

According to him, “AYIF has followed with concerns the reappearance of the wanted leader of the terrorist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and the invitation to anarchy by one of those standing trial for corruption, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), who disclosed that Kanu has agreed to work for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming elections.

 “We find it odd that Fani-Kayode, who had alleged a military abduction and assassination of Nnamdi Kanu did not deem it proper to apologise to Nigerians for his lies but simply pretended as if he never made such outlandish claims and switched to talking political alliance. 

“We, therefore, warn the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar that he risks losing the support of Arewa if he associates his campaign with Femi Fani-Kayode and Nnamdi Kanu, who have both repeatedly declared their disdain and hatred for Nigerians from the northern parts of the country. 

“We find it abominable that Fani-Kayode who sees Arewa as a plague and Kanu that sees us as animals can today be attempting to hitch a ride on Atiku Abubakar’s PDP ticket when they still hold steadfastly to their genocidal views against Hausa/Fulani. If they successfully hitch the ride they seek then we will rather mobilise for the person the PDP is seeking to unseat.
