The president of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, has berated the President Buhari-led federation government over Nigeria’s current debt profile.
Yerima Shettima, the Ariwa Youth president-general in a chat with Info Xclusive Media team, stated that Buhari-led administration had mortgaged the future on Nigerians, because of the country’s current debt profile.
Yerima Shattima made this statement while insisting that President Buhari’s administration has not done anything good ever since he assumes power.
Yerima Shattima lamented that Buhari’s administrations have failed in carrying out its promises to Nigeria in the area of insecurity and fights against corruption and diversification of the economy.
When Info Xclusive Media Team asked him if President Buhari’s administration was doing well, he said, “No, the present government came into power based on three things, and people believe those three things are the problems which are insecurity, fight against corruption and diversification of the economy.
“Are we today happy with insecurity, definitely no because it has become a significant challenge. We were far better where we came from than where we are today.
“Secondly, are they fighting corruption? Of course, that is no story, the man in charge of fighting graft has found himself in a huge dilemma.
“Thirdly, on the economy, is it the hardship or the high profile debt that has become a burden because of the debt incurred now? I don’t think out grandchildren would be able to pay back. Our future has been mortgaged.”
He charged Nigerian youths to rise and ensure that the right people are voted in 2023.
“My advice to Nigerians is that if we are determined, we can work collectively and come out of this. All hands must be on deck to work out things and occupy political space and pave the way for those we think are competent without minding if they have money or not.
“We should ensure we sacrifice for the country so the right people can come in and reboot and reconstruct the country again. We can’t continue like these, and if we miss the next election, that would be the end of Nigeria, God forbid,” he said.
