The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has urged Nigerians to produce compelling evidence that Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is unfit to run for President in 2023 due to his health. ayokinews.com reports
Without such proof, the Arewa leaders believe Tinubu should be allowed to run for office.
Emmanuel Yawe, the ACF’s spokesman, revealed this yesterday in the wake of the APC stalwart’s announcement that he will compete for the country’s top post.
According to the organization, Nigeria must be spared the misery of having a President who is unable to lead the country due to health issues.
“If people have issues or evidence about his (Tinubu) health, let them come out and speak. Let them provide evidence that he is not strong enough to contest for the Presidency or hold the office.

“The people, who have the evidence that Tinubu is not strong enough for the office of Presidency, should save us the agony of having a sick President in office. They should speak out,” ACF stated.
The group cited the death of late President Umaru Yar’Adua, who died in office after falling ill thus putting the country in a constitutional crisis.
“So, if we know that somebody is sick, we should not allow him to take over that office. It is a serious office that will determine the future of millions of citizens. In a complex country like Nigeria, we should not allow somebody that is not medically fit to occupy such office and mess all of us up.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari is always travelling abroad for medical attention, and Nigerians would be organising demonstrations to force him back home. It was really embarrassing. We should not allow such things to happen again,” Yawe added.
