A coalition of over 40 groups, under the auspices of Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF) has congratulated His Excellency, the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on his victory in the presidential primary of the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and pledged to strive to ensure he wins the 2023 elections.
This was said in a statement signed by NYLF President Comrade Eliot Afiyo and released to the press on Sunday, May 29.
“While we are not shocked by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s victory in the PDP primaries, which finished early this morning, we are pleased that his victory provides hope to ordinary Nigerians who have been through a lot recently,” the statement added.
NYLF said it is also congratulating the PDP for producing a winning candidate, Nigerians for the hope of a brighter future and the North, which has not had its fair share of the presidency under the PDP.
“With the primaries done, NYLF will immediately swing into action to mobilize support from the grassroots for our adopted candidate for the 2023 Presidential election,” it informed.
The group expresses appreciation the Northern Elders for their intervention to ensure the victory of Atiku.
“We also thank Governor Aminu Tambuwal for putting the Northern interest above any other interest.
“We extend our appreciation to Teecom under the Chairmanship of High Chief Raymond Dokpesi,” they said.
