Northern Youths Endorse Osinbajo, Oppose Same-Faith Candidacy

Northern Youths have drummed support for Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari. Osinbajo’s rumoured presidential ambition got a boost on Wednesday, January 5, as some youths drawn from the 19 northern states and Abuja converged on Kaduna and tipped him as the best man in 2023.

They said the North should concede the 2023 presidency to the Southwest geopolitical zone and in particular to the incumbent Vice-President for continuity’s sake. While noting that Osinbajo was fit to take over from Buhari, the group, however, warned against fielding candidates of the same faith for the position of president and vice-president in 2023.
