2019: Northern Youths commence search for alternative to Buhari



Peeved by the seeming drift in the nation’s economy and politics, Northern youths under different groups have commenced frantic search for a possible Northern presidential material to back in the 2019 presidential election.

The Northern groups including the Arewa Youth Forum, AYF and the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF are being backed by some northern egg heads among whom is Dr. Junaid Mohammed.

The AYCF Saturday Vanguard learnt is bidding till after the May 29, 2017 second anniversary of the Buhari administration to name its shortlist of potential candidates to succeed Buhari.

President Muhammadu Buhari during the Federal Executive Council Meeting held at the Council Chamber State House Abuja.

The bid of the Northern groups is irrespective of a declaration of intent by President Muhammadu Buhari whose first term has been dogged by ill-health and a recession, whose fundamentals, administration officials, claim were inherited from the preceding administration.

Buhari had upon his return from a 50 day medical vacation last month confessed to the fact of his ill-health saying, ‘I have never been this sick in my life.’
