He also said equally youths constituted about 55% of the party executives that emerged from the Ward and local Government congress respectively.

He explained that nothing will stop APC youth from supporting any member of their constituent that comes out to vie for any position including the presidency come 2023.

Fakai added that they are not challenging their leaders or fighting
them and will not do anything against the legal proceedings of the party.

On zoning, he said APC constitution recognise merit and integrity of the aspirant, not where he comes from, advising the party to be concerned on who will get majority votes of Nigerians to win the election.
