“There are plots to derail Tinubu’s 2027 presidential bid” – Northern groups raise alarm

Some northern groups, represented by the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) and the Northern Awareness Network (NAN), have raised an alarm over what they perceive as a covert scheme to thwart President Bola Tinubu’s potential bid for re-election in 2027.

In a joint statement issued over the weekend, AYCF President Yerima Shettima and NAN Chairman Salifu Suleiman accused certain political actors of plotting to weaken Tinubu’s support base through interference in his cabinet.

According to the groups, the achievements of President Tinubu’s administration thus far are largely attributed to the dedication and competence of his team of ministers and officials. 

Part of the statement read: “The Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike, has been instrumental in the development and improvement of infrastructure in the Nigerian seat of power.

“His innovative projects and policies have transformed the FCT into a modern and dynamic city, attracting investments and creating opportunities for its residents.

“The Minister of Budget, Abubakar Bagudu, has been instrumental in managing the nation’s finances and ensuring fiscal responsibility.

“His strategic planning and budgeting skills have helped steer the country towards economic stability and growth. Bagudu’s prudent financial management has earned him respect and admiration within the administration.

“The Minister of Defence State, Bello Matawalle, has been pivotal in strengthening the nation’s security and military capabilities. His leadership and proactive measures have led to significant gains in the fight against terrorism and insurgency.
