Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has condemned the actions of some political elements to truncate the May 29 handover by installing a National Interim Government.

It can be recalled that the Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday raised the alarm saying that it has identified some key political players plotting to create an Interim Government in the country.

The security alert by the DSS has continued to generate reactions across the country as supporters of the ruling party and the president-elect vowed to thwart the plot, insisting that the former Lagos Governor must be sworn-in on May 29 as contained in the country’s constitution.

Speaking on the matter, the National President of Arewa, Yerima Shettima in a chat with newsmen explained that the plot would only amount to effort in futility.

According to him, those echoing the call for Interim Government are ignorant of the ultimate sacrifices paid by some patrotic Nigerians to ensure the current democratic government the country enjoys.

The Arewa President went further mentioning that those calling for Interim Government are enemies of democracy. The Arewa President dared them to “try rubbish and see what will happen”.

He said, “Often, when I hear people talk about an interim government, I see them as dreamers living on the figment of their imagination, which is an expensive joke.

“We dare those proponents of interim government, again and again, to try rubbish and see what will happen. These are people that can best be described as enemies of democracy. Some of us are not finding this language funny.

“I remember vividly in the 90s when we were very young in the struggle; when we were in the trenches with senior comrades such as Gani Fawehinmi, Anthony Enahoro, Wole Soyinka, and the rest of them. I remember vividly that that illegality happened but by then we were not strong enough to do anything. But today, we dare those characters.

“Let them try it after all our sacrifices for democracy. This is because those calling for an interim government have not made any sacrifice for democracy. They have not paid any dues and have not been in the trenches. They only saw themselves in the corridors of power by mere opportunity. They have not made a single sacrifice.

“But some of us who were in the trenches at the time of the dark days of the military, and suffered a lot of incarceration in the hands of one military dictator to another won’t allow such to happen. As a matter of fact, we lost some of our comrades to the struggle because we yearned for democracy.

“I also remember that some of our comrades were jailed and to date, their lives cannot be the same. Only a few of us are opportune to stay strong to date to give the story of what happened during those dark days.

“And if anybody just wakes up from his hangover to talk about interim government, God will not forgive that person. We are waiting, we are determined.

“Let us wait and see what will happen between now and May 29. Let them not hand over power to the president-elect and see what will happen. We will occupy this country. They have never seen what they will see this time around.

“Let them not joke with us. We are determined and willing to ensure that democracy has come to stay in this country. Nobody can undermine this democracy. We will not allow those enemies to succeed. Again, we will never!”
