The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has alleged that a cabal in the current government has turned President Muhammadu Buhari into a private property.
AYCF made the claim while expressing worry over the continuous absence of the President in public.
In a statement by its leader, Yerima Shettima, the Northern group maintained that the President was not elected to stay indoors.
The statement reads, “Nigerians want to see the President they voted for. Nigerians want to know the status of his health. We are praying for him to get better but nobody should hide him from us. We are worried.
“It is disturbing and worrisome that we have not seen him in public and that we do not know his exact health status.
“Nobody should hide him away from us because we feel he has been kidnapped from Nigerians. He is being treated with taxpayers’ money so they deserve to know the status of his health.
“It is sad that against all odds, a cabal in the government has turned Buhari to a private property. But Buhari is a public property as an elected president of the country. Tradition and constitution demand that we should know about his health.
“No one has the right to hide him from us. We are concerned; we are worried. We feel that our mandate is being hijacked by some people. The electorate must know what has happened to their mandate.”
