The Northern Youths Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to support former President Goodluck Jonathan’s presidential bid in 2023.

This was stated by Isa Abubakar, president of the NYCN, on Arise Television on Saturday night.

According to Abubakar, the former president has everything it takes to lead the country to the promised land.

“I think it is a great decision for former President Goodluck Jonathan. He was a purposeful leader for the 6 years that he ruled the nation,” he said.

“He is still very vibrant. While some Nigerians are still agitating for a youthful president, some youths are governors but are not doing enough to ensure that the state they govern enjoys the dividend of democracy in terms of infrastructure and welfare of its workers.

“President Buhari should consider endorsing Jonathan if he is ready to contest the 2023 election. We are planning to mobilize ourselves to pay him a visit to consider running for the 2023 presidential election.

Abubakar said youths must be involved in politics and governance to set the country on the right trajectory.

“80 percent of them have refused to vote or participate in politics which has greatly led to voters’ apathy,” he said.

“Youth activists must call the youths to order. They must engage in massive sensitization campaigns to ensure that narratives change.”
