The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, has pointed out what will happen if President Muhammadu Buhari refuses to concede defeat in the event that he loses the forthcoming presidential election.
In an interview with DAILY POST, AYCF President General, Yerima Shettima warned that Buhari “won’t get away with it” if he fails to concede defeat should he lose at the forthcoming election.
Reacting to insinuation in certain quarters that Buhari may not emulate his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan should the odds turn against him, the AYCF President General warned that Nigerians are “so exposed now,” hence the president won’t get away with such.
Shettima reminded the president that he was a product of a free and fair election.
He said: “Buhari is a product of free and fair election. If Jonathan had not conceded defeat, he won’t have been there today. I’m sure he must have learnt from some of his mistakes and I won’t want to believe that he can do that.
“Nigerians are so exposed now that he can’t do that and get away with it. The international community and Nigerians are watching and he can’t force himself on the country if he loses an election. He can’t do that and certainly, I don’t want to believe that he thinks that way. I want to believe that it’s just rumour. He can’t do that because we are not in banana republic.
“The international communities and the people are certainly interested in the forthcoming elections, so he can’t take over 200 million Nigerians for granted.
“This is not possible. I believe this is an imagination of some people who want to remain in there because they are milking the country, so they want to remain and die there. Nigeria is too big for such.”
