The Pan-Northern Group, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF has described the recent call by the federal lawmakers for the removal of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Mr Babachir as a decoy designed to divert attention from the criminal cases hanging on their necks.

In a release issued by the Group and signed by its National President, Alhaji Yerima Shetima, it cautioned the lawmakers in the upper and lower chambers to thread carefully because according to the group those in glass houses should learn not to throw stones.

AYCF said the Senate and House of Representatives leaders calling on Babachir to resign should show good example by stepping aside pending the outcome of the court cases against them that are ongoing.

“We demand a demonstration of their honesty and sincerity in calling for the resignation of Babachir by making the first move.

“We are aware that Babachir’s case just like the CCT against Saraki and the criminal padding against Dogara are all allegations. So there is not harm in asking them to step aside in the interest of fairness and justice . Anyone can be innocent until found guilty by a competent court of law. It is as simple as that and we hope the Senate and House of Reps would follow the path of honour and not indulge in diversionary tactics”, AYCF said.

AYCF warned the Federal lawmakers to note that Nigeria electorate are now better enlightened and are watching closely developments on the democratic scene.
