The coalition of Northern Youth Forum has endorsed Comrade Adams Oshomole for the chairmanship position of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Addressing a press conference in Sokoto, the National Secretary General of the Forum, Abdulrahman Aliyu said they were supporting the former Governor of Edo state because he was a union leader who has always been on the side of the people.
"We believe that he understands the youth struggle, students struggle and that of the labour of which he was its leader," he said.
According to him, Oshiomhole has the skills and experiences needed to reconcile members of the party.
"We hereby declare our full support to him," he added.
He further urged all stakeholders and delegates to ensure the former NLC president emerge as the new chairman of the party in the interest of the country.
