Arewa youths to Buhari: consider young talented Nigerians during appointments
Arewa youths reject puppet, stooge as Senate President, Speakers
Northern-based organization: Arewa Youths Initiative for Peace and Good Leadership, have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to consider during appointments, young talented Nigerians and grant them opportunities to serve their fatherland, instead of what they termed ’’recycling of old hands ‘’when making crucial appointments.
The President of the Association, Ambassador Mohammed Rilwanu Katun, who made the above call during a chat with The Nation in katsina, also faulted the appointment of Ex-Service Chiefs as Non-Career Ambassadors, describing the action as emanating from the President’s personal opinion and not that of Nigerians.
He said ’’We always watch with dismay most of the decisions being taken by the federal government without seeking the opinions and contributions of the citizens of this country.
“Our stands is that he should have given room to other patriotic citizens to also showcase their talents by discharging their service to the country because ex-chiefs are not the only patriotic citizens in the country.
‘’Young talented Nigerians should always be given opportunity to represent Nigeria globally regardless of their, region, ethnic or religious affinity, it’s the only way that will make Nigeria grow stronger and united.”
He called on the present administration to always shun taking appointment decisions that could threaten the unity of Nigeria.
