Northern youths shortlist Atiku, Saraki, Lamido, 6 others as candidates for 2019 presidential election

National Chairman of the Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF), Elliot Afiyo, says the group has shortlist 11 politicians from the region that are eligible to contest for the 2019 presidential election.

In a statement released yesterday, the group listed former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, ex Gombe state governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, Sokoto state governor Aminu Tambuwal,

Senator Bala Muhammed and Alhaji Tanimu Turaki, as respectable presidential candidates from the North while other politicians who made the list include Senate President, Bukola Saraki, former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, Kaduna state governor Nasir El-rufai, former Kano State governor Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, former Borno State governor Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, Borno state governor Ibrahim Shettima and Zamfara state governor Abdul’aziz Abubakar Yari.

The group said the North must retain the presidency come 2019 and that it would not allow anyone from the South clinch the presidential seat come 2019.

They warned Northern youths from collaborating with politicians from the Southern region to clinch power in 2019. “We want to reiterate and clearly warn that the North will not, and will never allow presidency to move to the South in 2019.

As much as we can tolerate or pay any sacrifice for the unity of this country, we remain committed to a northern president in 2019.

We want to send a message to all political parties that may field southern presidential candidates in 2019 election that such action will amount to committing a political suicide” a statement by the group said The group condemned the quit notice given to Igbos residing in the North by some of its youths. “We consider the quit notice as ill advised, ill-timed and uncalled for.

We strongly believe the groups of northern youths were motivated, encouraged and sponsored by some individuals who felt cheated by both the federal government and some state governments controlled by the APC.

These individuals were used and dumped; no recognition or appreciation was extended to them. They are, therefore, bent on destabilising the government".

    “Who is he that speaketh, and it shall come to pass, when the Lord has not commanded it?” Lamentation 3:37. This means your counsel will never stand in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The Northerners are the least educated set of people, yet they perceived "Presidency" to be their birth right. In all ramifications, none of these self-centred men deserved the seat of presidency, all of them have been in one corridor of a power or the other, yet, there is no excellent record about them, in a sane country, people like these would have been locked up for one offence or the other due to their shady records. Northerners are not the only ethnic in Nigeria, yet, they have been in power more than any other ethnic. It is so pathetic that the energy the Igbo and Niger Delta indigenes are using for other claims are not being used against these Northerners. Please other ethnics, let us all work in unity and silent all these power thirsty Northerners by proving that we are more intelligent than they think.

    It is clear n obvious that Nigeria is unstable and the North is its major problem... Can u imagine??!?! The only solution is to divide the country let the north go their separate way cos majority now believe that they are born to rule.

    At first I thought they were a serious group till I saw this. This is just a faceless group obviously sponsored by corrupt people trying to divide and conquer. Northerners DO NOT want any of the above candidates. Ask ALL of your northern acquaintances and see if ANYONE agrees. These candidates cannot secure anywhere part of the North apart from their local govt. and even that is debatable.

    This so call northern youths are dementia. Imagine, in a Democratic setting, you are imposing candidates on electorates saying those they have chosen are the qualified. What standard did u used to make the few qualified and vast majority unquantified? Then they say they can tolerate..... and the quit notice given by their equally have idiot members are ill-timed, meaning d call was right but not timely? Other tribes should be on watch out. And of course, why are they forcing others in a relationship they are just tolerating? Please, let everybody go their way and stop tolerating but to live in satisfaction.
