Comment on Elders: Northern Youths Blasts Governor El-Rufai
- The Arewa Progressive Youths League have lambasted Governor El Rufai of Kaduna state over his recent remarks
- According to the youths in a statement, the governor has no reason to target the elders in his statement
- Recall that the Kaduna governor had said that the Northern governors are the real elders in the north
The Arewa Progressive Youths League has condemned the Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai's remarks against the elders of northern Nigeria, saying they are uncomplimentary.
Reacting in statement made available to Legit.ng and signed by its leader, Sanusi Ibrahim, the Group recalled how El-Rufai, typical of a hypocritical ingrate, had derogatory many reputable Northern leaders and elders including Sardauna Sir Ahmadu Bello, Premier of northern region and other leaders who toiled and paid with their lives to carve a path for the development of the north.
They cautioned the northern public against losing their guard and falling for the lies and deceptions by Elrufai who now poses as champion of the common man.
The group issued the caveat in reaction to Governor El-Rufai's latest outburst in the media, to the point of making blanket condemnation of reputable elders of the North, while purporting to show sympathy for ordinary Nigerian families stressed by the temporary effects of the ongoing economic and financial reforms in the country.
