The Arewa Mandate Initiative (AMI) has urged Northern politicians nursing presidential ambition to shelve it in the interest of the party and national unity.

The group said many Northern youths in the All Progressives Congress (APC) had agreed that the party should zone the 2023 presidency to the South.

AMI Coordinators, Malam Muhammad Mubarak and Alhaji Aminu Muhammed, in a statement jointly signed, said the consensus was reached after months of consultations with youth groups and major stakeholders in the party spread across all the three geo-political zones of North West, North Central and the North East.

“While AMI recognises the right of all Nigerians to seek any elective office of their choice, it would however urge Northern politicians to let go off their presidential ambition as part of their own sacrifice for the unity and stability of Nigeria,” the statement read in part.

The group said it had beamed its searchlight on some individuals that might be acceptable to hoist the party’s flag during the 2023 presidential election.
