2023: Middle Belt youths tip Peter Obi, Kayode Fayemi for presidency

The Middle Belt Youth Council has urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to consider Peter Obi and Dr. Kayode Fayemi respectively as their presidential candidates.

President of the council, an umbrella body of all ethnic nationality youth leaders from the Middle Belt region, Comrade Emmanuel Zopmal, said on Tuesday in Abuja that there is intense complexity about zoning the presidential ticket come 2023 as the nation seems to be at loggerheads with itself over the 2023 presidency.

According to him, some desperate politicians are doing everything possible to scuttle the major political parties to remain silent about zoning, thus forcing the major political parties to be uncertain about which zone to give their ticket to.

“The silence of our major political parties on zoning the presidency come 2023 is raising some serious concerns and suspicion among Nigerians. We urge political parties in Nigeria to be agents of national unity and progress by shifting their presidential tickets to the south.

“We urge the two major political parties to consider Mr. Peter Obi, former Anambra State Governor (PDP), and Ekiti Governor Dr. Kayode Fayemi (APC) with their tickets because they are light of democracy and they represent the interest of Nigerian youths,” Zopmal said.

He also said that the only way to find lasting political stability in this country, the relevant security agencies should advise some politicians to stop unguarded and inflammatory utterances on the 2023 General Elections

He said that the middle belt youths have an unflinching support for Mr Peter Obi’s presidential ambition and are going to mobilize delegates from the region to massively vote for him during the presidential primary election.

“More so, Mr Obi has passion for the progress of youths. He has been a friend of the youths all through his political career. Therefore, he deserves the full support of all Nigerian youths particularly the Middle Belt youths,” he said.

He commended the efforts of both the National Assembly and President Muhammadu Buhari for keying into the Electoral Act Amendment Bill and signing it into law by Mr. President.

He also sympathized with the families of victims of train bombing along Abuja-Kaduna road which claimed many lives and others injured.
