A Northern Youths Group, the Arewa Youth Solidarity (AYS), has thrown its support behind the candidature of the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. David Umahi for the President of Nigeria in 2023.

The Group that described Umahi as a detribalised Nigerian, said the Governor had made Ebonyi State a safe haven for Northerners in the South East.

Addressing journalists during the weekend, the National Coordinator of the Youths Group, Ahmad Gorumo said:

“We, Arewa youths, are supporting the candidature of Umahi as a detribalised Nigerian, a dependable ally of the North, a progressive who believes in the mission of President Muhammadu Buhari and our party, All Progressives Congress.

“Umahi has made Ebonyi State a safe haven for northerners in the South East without discrimination and molestation.

“He has not enacted any anti-grazing law and he is the only governor to accept the ranching proposed by the Federal Government. These, and many other reasons, have endeared him to the North and we believe he can rule this country without discrimination to any zone.

“We, northern youths, will support him and have pledged to reach out to all stakeholders in the North and mobilise youths for his presidential contest in 2023.”

The Group said it recognised the need for Nigeria to remain united through justice and fairness, adding that power should shift to the South and particularly, the South East in 2023.
