Aegis of Middle Belt Youth Forum has revealed that they are ready to produce the next president of Nigeria and advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to contest the 2019 Presidential election, following his inability to address herdsmen killings that has consumed several lives in the region.
“A credible presidential candidate has merged from the Middle Belt with a view to tackle the rampant killings in the country and the persons would be announced formally to Nigerians after consultation with power brokers in the country. We believed that the region has been too silent that is why it has suffered avoidable attacks that consumed dozen of lives.”
Comrade Attah urged Federal Government to declare the herdsmen killing innocent people in the Middle Belt as terrorists and urged government to use its machineries to crushed their activities in the interest of peace and unity of the country.
He said youths from the Middle Belt felt disappointed with the manner in which Buhari’s government has treated the region which contributed immensely to enthroned him in 2015.
“We have nothing to show that Buhari’s government has done for us in the Middle Belt (North Central) apart from killing of innocent people by herdsmen and economic hardship that has ravaged the people. Something urgent need to be done before we are consumed and that is why we are ready to produce the next president of Nigeria.”
