2023: Buhari’s successor finally named by northern youths
Coalition Of Northern Nigerian Youth (CNNY) has lifted the lids on why they want former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, to be Nigeria’s next president by 2023.
The conversation on President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor has been brought closer with just three years to the expiration of his tenure, leaving the contest open to the southern zone.
But in an interesting turn, CNNY said it would be drumming for the presidency from the southeast with Kalu, a serving Abia North senator, taking the central office.
The group made this known on Thursday, October 1, in a statement released by its president Zarewa Salisu Sageer, national secretary, Abu Bature Dandume, and the regional coordinators of the group, the reflector reports.
Part of the statement read: “Out of our curiosity and positive thought, it has become absolutely imperative to write and urge his Excellency, the former Governor of Abia State and the current Chief Whip of the Senate, Distinguished Senator (Dr.) Orj Uzor Kalu to contest for the 2023 Presidential election as we believe that, he has the leadership acumen, capacity, dexterity and contacts to govern a complex nation like Nigeria.
