2023: Northeast youths vow to mobilise for Tinubu, Shettima victory
By Paul Michael
A political support group, the Northeast APC Youth Forum has said it would embark on a massive grassroots political campaign in the region and beyond to ensure the victory of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima, Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections.
Chairman of the Forum, Haruna Adamu Sardauna, said this during a press briefing with newsmen at the APC Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday.
Sardauna noted that APC has drastically improved the security situation in the northeast, where people are no longer displaced but enjoying their resettlement in their various communities.
He described the emergence of Shettima as the Vice Presidential candidate of APC as a response to the wishes and agitations of the people of the region, while appreciating the party’s leadership for the decision.
The youth leader described Shettima as a ”loyal, intelligent, unifier, and a peace-loving grassroots politician endowed with all the qualities of leadership.”
According to him, “The emergence of the PDP Presidential Candidate from the Northeast region will never be a threat to us nor be relevant for victory. The APC youths here are united and always ready to promote the Tinubu/Shettima presidential drive.”
While appreciating APC stakeholders from North-West and North-Central for their solidarity and continued support for the Northeast region, Sardauna said the northeast youths shall take their “campaigns from house to house, ward to ward and organize a sensitization programme on voters’ right and power and why APC should remain relevant for continuity and consolidation and more.“
His words, “It could be recalled that on 13th of June, 2022, we organized an International Press Conference here in Abuja, where we agitated for the office of the Vice President to be allocated to the Northeast region and now granted.
“Also, in appreciation and total Gratitude to the prompt response, accepting and considering our demand, we remain indebted to Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu the presidential flag bearer of this great party, and the entire leadership and APC stakeholders.

“The Northeast APC Youth Stakeholders Forum, and the entire leadership, members of the northeast card carriers are totally committed to bringing in all their political arsenals to make sure APC emerges victorious in the forthcoming 2023 general elections, Insha Allah.
“For Northeast to Support APC in 2023 Election is a payback, because APC has drastically improved the security situation of the region, people are no longer displaced but enjoying their resettlement to their various communities, people are enjoying freedom.
“Insha Allah APC will win all electoral positions in the forthcoming general elections with our dear father His Excellency, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the brand-new President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2023.
My address will not be complete without showing our appreciation to the press who have always been partners of progress, especially in the promotion of democracy in our dear country, Nigeria.”
