Arewa youth denounce Kwankwanso, says he doesn’t represent anything North.
Says Kwankwaso misrepresents, disrespects North.
A group, the Arewa Youths Progressive Alliance, has dissociated itself from a comment credited to the presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, that voters from the North would only vote for the region’s presidential candidates.
But the spokesman of the group, Alhaji Sambo Galadima, noted that “the North is neither anti-progress nor xenophobic against other Nigerians.”
In a statement released in Kaduna on Thursday, Galadima said that the impression created by the former Governor of Kano State was not only disrespectful to the region but misrepresented the true characters of an average northern voter.
Picking holes in the assertion by the NNPP presidential candidate who spoke on Channels TV, the spokesman noted that Kwankwaso’s utterances portrayed the North as retrogressive.
He further argued that the North had never been immune to the various troubles bedevilling the country.
Galadima then assured that the North would vote in line with what they considered the best for Nigeria at this time and in the future.
