A group of Northern youths under the platform of the Coalition of Civil Society for Good Governance has urged the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar to drop his presidential ambition on account of old age.

The group, which staged a peaceful protest in Kaduna state capital on Monday backed the calls for the presidency to be zoned to the southern part of the country in 2023 for the interest of justice and equity.

National Coordinator of the Coalition, Okpanachi Jacob, who addressed newsmen, said Atiku does not have enough in the tank to put in the high level of physical and mental effort needed to fix the problem of Nigeria.

He said, “The presidency should go to younger candidates in tune with the realities within which we exist in today’s world and capable of making decisions at the pace required therefrom. The south deserves the Presidency of Nigeria come 2023 and we must narrow down our focus to searching for the best candidate from the region rather than allowing the public discourse space to be crowded by a cacophony of distractions that will end up robbing us of the very best of us,”

“We for our part have promoted the candidature of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for years. But we humbly call on the former Vice President to do us a good turn in return for the many good turns we have done for him. We have sacrificed a lot pushing for democracy for the presidency of Atiku Abubakar all these years, even though we have been abandoned in a way by him after each election cycle.

“At almost 80, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar does not have enough in the tank to put in the high level of physical and mental efforts required to fix Nigeria. We equally call on other aspirants who are old to leave the field allowing for younger and vibrant candidates to emerge and take the reins of power.”
