Senator Shehu Sani who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, has called on Northern youths to not allow themselves be manipulated by their elites who are quick to use religion and region as shield whenever they are been called into account. 

Sani's advice came amid reports that a counter protest is being organized by groups in support of the Buhari administration. 

He said in a Facebook post, "They have oil blocs and Businesses in the South, Estates in Dubai and Europe, Shares in Lagos Banks and Industries, their kids are in foreign schools, they move and wed in private jets and on power bikes; When kata kata comes to them, they will run to you and shout “Arewa ake hari...or Arewa ake so aruguza”"

A previous report (h/t: SaharaReporters), says a group of angry Kano youth took matters into their own hands by at**cking a member of the All Progressives Congress representing Dawakin Tofa/Tofa and Rimin Gado Federal Constituency in Kano State, Tijjani Abdulkadir Jobe, for failing to deliver the dividends of democracy to them.

According to the report, the incident happened when Jobe went to inagurate a project at Gulu, a village under Rimin Gado Local Government Area.

A source said the lawmaker was beaten to a pulp by the youth, who accused him of making false promises for many years.

“He was given severe beating by the angry youth on Sunday. 

"They said they attacked him because of his fake promises for many years,” the source said.

In his own reaction to the ongoing #EndSARS protest across the country, former president Olusegun Obasanjo said the protest is between a frustrated people who demanding for a better life, and a government which has failed to live up to expectations.

Obasanjo who made the call on Monday while on a visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, called on the president to address the concerns of the masses.

He said, He said, “More than 65 per cent of our population are within the ages of 18 and 30; they are not only struggling to acquire education, they are also aspiring for the best that life can offer them.

“Some of them didn’t even get educated, while those who are educated are getting frustrated because of lack of opportunities. We must realise that the lid on the boiling steam would have to be removed.

“But, I believe that there are windows of opportunity which the government can explore to show that it cares about the people’s welfare, especially the youth, as the father of the country and particularly, as the father of the youth.

“Fortunately, the President has children and he knows how youths behave.

“I believe that the opportunities can still be taken to let the youth know that he, as a father, understands their plight and that his government understands their plight and he is ready to make life better for them.”
