The umbrella organization of all northern youths, Arewa Youth Forum, (AYF) has accused leaders in the region of politicizing the health issue of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Its National President, Comrade Gambo Ibrahim Gujungu said this in a press statement issued in Kaduna on Thursday.
He said, “we deem it necessary to affirm that all is not well with the country and most especially the north, the region that holds political reign of the country.
“President Muhammadu Buhari like any human being can be sick and looking at his age and the demand of superintending over a country like Nigeria, it is not surprising that his doctors have recommended further rest for the President to enable him recuperate towards facing the task of taking the country to the next level.
“However what is worrisome is the attitude of the politicians, especially those of Northern extraction towards the health of the President.
“Information available to us shows that instead of praying for the quick recovery of Mr. President and working to put the country in a better stead ahead of his return to the country, many of them including some northern Governors are working to position themselves for personal political gains to the detriment of the ideology of Mr. President and the reason for which he was overwhelmingly elected by majority of Nigerians.”
