The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), has said that the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu cannot be probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), because belongs to the party.
The AYCF was reacting to the petition written against Tinubu following the bullion vans that were seen entering his house during the 2019 general elections.
The petition was submitted by an activist, Deji Adeyanju, who called on the anti-graft agency to investigate the source of the money in the bullion vans seen entering Tinubu’s house.
Reacting to the petition, the President General of AYCF, Yerima Shettima, advised Nigerians against expecting anything from the petition. According to him, “nothing will come out of the investigation because he is an APC member”.
“It’s an allegation and all Tinubu needs is to come forward and make clarifications and I just hope that the so called institution which is the EFCC would do the necessary thing by looking into the issue.
There is nothing wrong if there is an allegation and somebody is petitioned and there is nothing wrong in Tinubu coming out to make clarifications. There is nothing extraordinary in this matter and I see nothing coming out from this petition especially coming from the quarter it’s coming from.
Our position on this issue is that even if you are an APC member, nothing will come out of this issue but if you are an enemy, not part of them, then certainly something will come out of it.”
