The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum has condemned the demolition of the building that housed a Kaduna faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) by the Governor Nasir el-Rufai.

They stated that the development throw the state into political turmoil and warned El-Rufai to watch his actions.

A statement issued by AYCF President Shettima Yerima on Tuesday said as stakeholders in the state, they will not fold their arms and watch an individual’s ambition created violence in Kaduna.

Yerima cautioned el-Rufai and his handlers against allowing premodial interest to override the general safety of people of the state.

“We note with deep concern that this is the second time el-Rufai will allow political intolerance to get the better of him.

“These, combined with his numerous unapologetic and hurtful public utterances are in no small measure harmful to the spirit of civil engagement in every democracy the world over.

“Nigeria and indeed the entire democratic world should hold el-Rufai responsible for any untoward incident resultant from his growing impatience and intolerance to opposition,” Yerima said.

Yerima said uncivilised actions would definitely add to the numerous other burdens el-Rufai would have to carry to the 2019 polls.

“This time around, el-Rufai must be made to pay compensation for the destruction from his own account. It will not be acceptable for public funds to be used in settling his wanton destruction,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, the state government through its Urban Planning and Development Agency has explained why it demolished the secretariat.
