A northern youth group has advocated for power shift to the Southern part of Nigeria, after the expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure in 2023.


The group said for the sake of national cohesion, peace and unity, the next President of Nigeria should come from the Southern part of the country.


National coordinator of the group, Comrade Alhassan Anas Muhammad spoke to journalists shortly after their sensitization rally in the North West  region to garner support for power shift to the Southern part of the country.

He said “it is only ideal for political leaders and other stakeholders to work  and support the emergence of  Presidential candidates of  southern extraction from all major political parties in  the country.


He described the position of some prominent Northern leaders insisting on retaining power in the North come 2023 as unfortunate and therefore should not be yielded by the good people of Nigeria 


The group also  commended the giant strides of President Muhammadu Buhari in area of sgricultural transformation, security and other developmental goals. 


“President Buhari has brought about the needed change in Nigeria through diversification of the nation’s economy, calming the security situation and empowering youth and women through I the social insurance programme of his government.


” We as Northern youth and indeed Nigerians are happy about the shift of attention to agriculture in Nigeria due to the effort of president Muhammadu Buhari who has remained focus and consistent to the goal of attaining food sufficiency and food security in the country.”


He added that “we are only advocating for a candidate of Southern extraction that share the same ideology with Buhari and have requisite experience to lead Nigeria to the promised land.


“We as a group have decided to throw our support behind  the former Lagos state governor and national leader of the All Progressives Congress Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu.


According to them, Tinubu is one of the very few progressives have distinguished themselves  and show commitment to the progressive and development of Nigeria.


 ” Tinubu played  key role in ensuring the success of the APC  and President Muhammadu Buhari in both 2015 and 2019 general election because of his firmed believe in the policies  programmes of the APC for Nigeria.

“For continuation and progress of Nigeria, a competent and capable personality that have been tested  should be supported by all to clinch the presidency of this country and that person we find in Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.” ¿0ⁿⁿ000ⁿ
