Don’t Host Tinubu’s Birthday Party in Govt House, Arewa Youths Tell Ganduje



The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF has cautioned Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State for alleged moves to turn Government House ,Kano into venue for the birthday party of National leader of the APC and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and advised him to move the event elsewhere.

“The plan is an insult on the symbol of authority that the Government House has been to the Kano people for decades,” they said.

A statement issued by the AYCF National President, Alhaji Yerima Shettima yesterday, frowned at the choice of Kano Government House as the only place in the North for celebrating   Tinubu’s birthday.

“He kept quiet while Northerners were under attack  in Oyo and some parts of the Southwest,” they said.

“While people from Ganduje’s Northern Nigeria were being maimed, Tinubu kept mute even when Northerners’ assets were being destroyed in some parts of the Southwest,” they alleged.

“In the guise of hunting down imaginary herdsmen   he   could not even condemn the violence. Yet, this is shamelessly the special guest for Ganduje in Kano Government House,” they said.

“Kano is not only the financial nerve centre of the North, but also the symbol of the region’s cultural   and historical pride, up to today and we won’t   fold our arms and watch this pillar of the North turned into a birthday party venue for people   who are not officials   of any government in the country.”

The youths urged   Ganduje “not to allow himself to be used as the only governor in the North to avail a whole symbol of authority—the Government House for a private citizen’s birthday party, something no Lagos State Governor has ever done to even the most respected politicians or private individuals from the North.

“Why can’t the governor of Lagos State, where Tinubu has a lot of influence do so inside the Government House, Alausa? Has Governor Ganduje ever hosted Aminu Kano’s remembrance in Government House? And if Governor Ganduje is so desperate about pleasing Tinubu, either as associate or political godfather what stops him from using any event
