Some youths under the aegis of Northern Youths Movement (NYM) have accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Senator Bola Tinubu of being behind the call for the resignation of President Mohammadu Buhari.
A group, tagged PDP Media Watchdog, had reacted to a statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari in South Africa, declaring that his age will limit his performance as President of Nigeria.
The group had urged the President to resign from office.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has, however, disowned the group, saying it has no knowledge of the Group in the party.
NYM in a statement signed by its Chairman, Mallam Ishaya Jato alleged that the press statement credited to the PDP Media Watchdog actually emanated from Tinubu’s media office in Lagos.
NYM alleged that it was part of the agenda to cut short Buhari’s tenure that Tinubu desperately wanted to hijack the Senate and House of Representatives by installing his cronies as Senate President, Deputy Senate President, Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
“The comment made in South Africa by President Buhari, regarding his age was deliberately hyped by Tinubu’s hatchet men in the media and the call for the president’s registration was aimed at gauging the reaction of Nigerians.
“Also, we are aware that Tinubu’s camp is working on the possibility of President Buhari not completing his term, either due to failing health or death.
“However, we youths in north are aware of his (Tinubu) plot against the north and we wish to tell him that we are watching.
“He has failed in his attempt to hijack the National Assembly and use it to impeach President Buhari and we want to assure Tinubu and his cronies that President Buhari will not only complete his tenure, he will go for second term,” NYM said.
