Those waiting for EFCC to prosecute Tinubu might wait forever —Arewa Youths



El-Rufai’s belated push for our arrest proves he’s ‘enemy of the country’- Arewa youths

The President General of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF), Yerima Shettima, has told those who care to listen not to expect the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to prosecute the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), over the sighting of two bullion vans at his residence during the general elections.

Shettima was reacting to a petition tabled before the EFCC by the convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, on Friday to investigate Tinubu over the source of money allegedly conveyed in bullion vans to his residence during the 2019 Presidential elections.

He said that the EFCC may not go ahead to probe Tinubu because of his affiliation with the ruling party.

Shettima in a statement issued on Sunday said; “It’s an allegation and all Tinubu needs is to come forward and make clarifications and I just hope that the so called institution which is the EFCC would do the necessary thing by looking into the issue.

“There is nothing wrong if there is an allegation and somebody is petitioned and there is nothing wrong in Tinubu coming out to make clarifications, there is nothing extraordinary in this matter and I see nothing coming out from this petition especially coming from the quarter it’s coming from.

“Our position on this issue is that even if you are an APC member, nothing will come out of this issue but if you are an enemy, not part of them, then certainly something will come out of it,” he added.
