The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has kicked against the nomination of Godswill Akpabio as the next Senate President.
AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, said the South East can produce a competent senate president.
Shettima urged the APC to encourage national unity by reviewing Akpabio’s nomination.
”The APC brought a zoning formula and came up with someone from Akwa Ibom and this character, we know him very well. Because it is a party politics, they want to put it to be superior, it is not done anywhere
”APC needs to encourage national unity by demonstrating it. Let them look and their position and review it clearly. They should look at the issue of bankruptcy, debt and agitation from every part of the country and insecurity. We are in a fragile situation, we cannot afford to collect more debt if not we are finished
”Although, I am of the view that the APC should reconsider positions. The South East is not helping themselves to be part of the national bureau. They need to be nationalistic in their approach.
”I am of the view that the government should encourage unity, we should carry our brother in the South East together,” he told DAILY POST.
