A group of young people from the north known as United Northern Youth and Students (UNYS) supported the national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu. for the presidency of 2023.
The coordinator of the youth group, comrade Jabir Maiturare, said on Friday the group’s support for the former governor of Lagos during a press conference in the state of Kaduna.
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.
“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.”
