THE Northern Youths Council of Nigeria (NYCON) has asked the Federal Government to sack the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
National President of NYCON, Comrade Isah Abubakar, stated that “the office of the Attorney General should be occupied by a proactive and more intelligent person than the snail-paced and docile Malami.”
NYCON on Thursday gave a 14-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to reveal the identities of those sponsoring terrorists financially or face a mass protest.
Abubakar said the group’s reaction was based on Channels Television’s programme, ‘Sunrise Daily’ on Wednesday where a guest, Kunle Olawunmi, a retired Navy Commodore and a Professor of Intelligence and Global Security Studies, alleged that a senior member of the government has connections with Boko Haram.
The Northern group maintained that the weighty allegation if not properly treated through deliberate government efforts, was capable of further polarising the country already faced with different secessionist agitations.

The group called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sack Malami who had earlier brought the issue of the sponsors of insecurity to the public domain with the promise of unveiling their identities but failed to do so.
The group said it would protest across the 19 northern states and the Federal Capital Territory if its demands were not met.
