2023 Presidency: Tinubu gets endorsement from Northern youths.
Members of the United Northern Youths and Students (UNYS) have indicated interest in backing Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), for the 2023 presidency.
The leader of the group, Comrade Jabir Maiturare, while addressing newsmen on Friday, condemned the announcement made by Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State where he called for abolition of power rotation in the country.
The coordinator further noted that the former Lagos State Governor has contributed in no small measure to the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in his first term and his re-election in the 2019 presidential election.
“Let it be known that Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu has not declared to contest for any position yet,” Comrade Maiturare stated.
“Instead, he is solidly behind President Muhammadu Buhari and giving him the required support.
“In any case, whenever he seeks to contest for any position, including the presidency, in 2023, we are ready to give him overwhelming support and we therefore dissociate ourselves from such irresponsible act of some minority youth from the North.
“In the same vein, we wish to state categorically that Governor Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai’s statement against the zoning arrangement in place is uncalled for and should not be given any serious thought because he speaks only for himself and not for the North.”
