Following the declaration of his interest in emerging Nigeria’s President come 2023, Some Northern Youths under the umbrella of Coalition Of Northern Nigerian Youth (CNNY) have thrown their weight behind the former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu.
Though there are indications that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will also vie for the 2023 Presidency, the coalition said it would be supporting Kalu, who is also a serving Senator representing Abia North.
The Youth coalition in a statement signed by its president, Zarewa Salisu Sageer, national secretary, Abu Bature Dandume, and the regional coordinators of the group urged Kalu to contest for the 2023 Presidential election.
It was gathered that the youths expressed confidence in Kalu’s leadership acumen, capacity, dexterity and contacts to govern Nigeria.
According to the CNNY, Kalu’s personality, foresight, leadership style and experience will bring lots of development and prosperity to millions of Nigerians.
You will recall that Orji Kalu had earlier paid a private visit to former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida and visited a former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar as part of plans to declare his interest in the Presidency.
