The Arewa Youth Assembly has called on the Federal Government to act fast and caution a human rights activist and chief anchor of the Brekete Family Radion, Ahmed Isah.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, December 16, the publicity secretary of the organisation, Ali Muhammad, accused Isah, popularly known as Ordinary President, of professional misconduct and positioning himself as a constituted authority.

Muhammad also alleging that Isah had used his platform to malign the integrity and reputation of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and its key staff; the immediate past president of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick among others have continued to pose as an assault to the nation's judiciary.

Muhammad citing a case of Gudaji Kazaure, a lawmaker of the House of Representatives who raised alarm over perceived corruption within the Central Bank of Nigeria, said Isah has made his station available for maligning public figures and reputable government agencies.

He said: "We wonder what or who has given Ahmed Isa this much power to a point of calling himself a President, using his radio house as a courtroom, where various cases are heard and verdicts and passed with him as the lawyer and the judge as well.

"He thinks of himself as so powerful that he can decide to call any calibre of Nigerian whenever he wishes to, not minding the nature of work and how busy the individual could be at that material time.

He alone has taken up the responsibility of acting as the commander in chief of our dear country, continuously undermining and making a mockery of the office and person of President Muhammadu Buhari severally as was seen in the case of the ASUU strike, where he was quoted to have said he would pay up ASUU, inciting Nigerians against their one, and true President.

"With the way things are going, if Ahmed Isa is left unchecked, we might one day witness a coup de tat, Ahmad Isa is power drunk and can do unseen things to acquire it, since he has undermined every legally constituted authority in this country."

Making the demands known, the organisation urged the FG to ensure that Nigeria's broadcasting codes are strictly adhered to while punishing those that veered off with full wrath of the law.

Alleging that Isah seems to be forming a parallel government in Nigeria, Muhammad called on the Nigerian government and all security agencies to look into the activities of the broadcaster and the Berkete family to authenticate their source of funding and their overall activities.

He added: "The Arewa Youth Assembly is vigilant, attentively paying attention, hence calling with a strong voice of caution on those individuals who go to the Brekete radio house to not discuss sensitive national issues that are capable of causing chaos, disorderliness or incite the youths to violence."

Speaking to, Isah said although he doubts the authenticity of the organisation making the claims, he would, however, appreciate it if they point to the section of the broadcasting code he has violated.

His words: "I am human and I keep saying it I am not perfect, I am ready to make amends where necessary. Let them identify the sections of the code I have breached and if there is a need for me to make corrections, I take them. I am not a perfect human being. "I say this all the time, I am only being moved by the zeal to see a better society in Nigeria."
