Tinubu Should Be Next President Of Nigeria – Group
The National Leader of the All Progressives Council (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been backed to take over as Nigeria’s leader when President Muhammadu Buhari’s term ends in 2023.
A political group, North Eastern Youth Mobilization Congress, gave the endorsement in a statement issued at the weekend in Bauchi.
The group’s coordinator, Aliyu Balewa, gave the statement at the end of the inauguration ceremony of the executive members of the congress.
Balewa said power should shift to the South in 2023 since the North would have served two consecutive terms by then.
He added that Tinubu is a unifying political figure who has contributed immensely to the nation’s political structure and deserves to be compensated with the APC presidential ticket.
“On justice ground, power should shift to the southern part of the country in 2023 since the North has served two consecutive terms.”
“We believe that the best person to succeed Buhari is the APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, because he is instrumental to Buhari’s victory in the 2015 and 2019 elections. He also contributed tremendously to the success of the APC in all other elective offices.”
“Therefore, 2023 should be payback time. Let us respect the gentleman agreement by supporting the South to produce the next president. And Bola Tinubu is the best man for the job in view of his political experience, dexterity, exposure and national patriotism,” Balewa said.
