Oyogist has learned that the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum has vowed to do everything within its power to ensure that Northern Nigeria produces the next president in 2023.
The AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, said the North would mobilise people of the region to get their Permanent Voters Cards to vote for a presidential candidate from the region.
Shettima stated that the North would produce a youthful and capable president in 2023.
He said: “We will mobilise our people to get their PVCs because democracy is all about numbers and we will get the numbers that will give us the next president of this country, no going back on it.
“Southern Governors need to bring their heads down and lobby, let’s talk, agree and bargain because democracy is all about lobbying, understanding and respect for one another, not by intimidating anybody.
“We would push for Nigeria’s president from Northern extraction, we are not looking for Southern presidency the way they are looking for it, we are looking for the president of the country from Northern extraction.
“He would be experienced, youthful with capacity and something to offer and we will build synergy.”
