A northern youth group known as United Northern Youth and Students (UNYS) has started galvanising support for the National leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, should he choose to contest in the next presidential election in 2023.
During a press conference held in Kaduna on Friday, the UNYS in a statement said it is ready to throw it’s weight behind Tinubu if he seeks to contest for any position, including the presidency in four years time.
The group revealed that much and more through its Coordinator, Comrade Jabir Maiturare, during the press parley.
He said: “Let it be known that Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu has not declared to contest for any position yet. Instead, he is solidly behind President Muhammadu Buhari and giving him the required support. I killed my lover’s father in self defense — 29- year-old man reveals
“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,” Maiturare added.
