A group of Northern youths and women under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday adopted the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the consensus candidate of APC in the 2023 Presidential election.
The group of youths and women from the 19 Northern States of the Federation reiterated their stance to back Tinubu as they converged in Abuja in their numbers and marched to the Presidential villa to inform President Muhammadu Buhari of their choice.
The group said Tinubu is the only person fit and capable among all those that have been declaring their intention to turn around the economy of the country.
Led by Patriot Yakubu Dauda, the group said the APC Youth and Women in the 19 Northern States of the federation have been actively involved in the activities of the party through several ways that have positioned the party firmly in the hearts of the people.
“We wish to inform Mr President that we have also been actively mobilizing support for the party at the grassroots levels across the 19 northern states in preparation for the 2023 general elections.
“The response of the people has been encouraging. We wish to use this medium to inform Mr President that the APC as a party has continued to have a stronghold amongst the people who have been beneficial to the various social security initiatives implemented across the country in critical sectors such as agriculture, education and health.
“Mr President, in the course of our daily engagements, across the northern states, we have been inundated with an astronomical level of support for the presidential aspiration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
