The All Progressives Congress (APC ) Northwest youths have vowed that they would deliver 10 million votes for the presidential candidate of the  party, Asiwaju Ahmed  Bola Tinubu. 

The APC Northwest  youth leader, Hon. Abdulhamid Umar Muhammad  said on Tuesday that already, youth leaders from Katsina, Sokoto, kebbi, Kaduna, Zamfara , Jigawa and kano states  are currently penetrating the grassroots to preach the gospel of Tinubu/Shetima to the people.

 ” Our target is to give the APC Presidential candidate at least 10 million votes in North west, as people from the region  are aware that both Tinubu and Shetima took care of business in their states as governors and we can all see the dividends in the respective states they governered,” he said.

Commenting on the APC presidential candidate’s track records, Muhammad explained  that on a national level,  Asiwaju has built many youths, who are occupying different leadership positions, adding that, “his footprints of empowerment are everywhere.

” Therefore,  We from the northwest  are working assidously to ensure Tinubu becomes the president , because he represents prosperity, capacity, development, and prosperity.” 

“We are confident that Asiwaju’s excellent performance in  Lagos  as a governor, in area of the academics, governance and administration,  will be replicated to address the challenges confronting this nation.” 

While reacting to the protest against the joint muslim ticket by the Coalition of APC Stakeholders network and Southwest Suppprters of Tinubu, Muhammad said the presidential candidate made the right choice by choosing  Senator   kashim Shetima  as his running mate.

He described  Shettima as an experienced  and intelligent   young nationalist  whose eight years as governor of Borno State – from 2011 to 2019 – was a defining moment for the state.

 “As a matter of fact, just like Asiwaju, Senator Shetima was eqaullaly succeded by one of the best performing governors in the country, in person of Govnor Babagana Zulum.”

“Shettima who is economically sound with vast experience in the banking sector, has all it takes to move the country forward with the APC presidential flag bearer.”

“We believe Asiwaju  Tinubu settled for one of the best hands for the job of Nigeria’s Vice-President.We appeal to Nigerians to shun religious acrimony and sentiments as 2023 general election is approaching,good candidate and performances should be the yardstick in the interest of a united, peaceful and prosperous Nigerian,” he said.
