All Progressives Congress (APC) youths in the North have thrown their weights behind the clamour for the party to zone its presidential seat to the South East.

The youth, under the aegis of Concerned Northern APC Youth Forum, said after their consultation tour of the 19 northern states, they concluded that the party should zone its presidential seat to the South East.

The chairman of the forum, Suleiman Liba, while addressing newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja, said justice, fair and equity must come to play in electing the country’s next president.

The group also expressed its support for the presidential ambition of Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi.

Umahi had in January announced his presidential ambition after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja.

The Ebonyi State governor said he had told Buhari about his ambition to contest for the seat if the party, APC, zones the ticket to the Southern region.

Liba said Umahi remains the best candidate to succeed President Buhari due to his record of achievements in Ebonyi State.

“In Engr David Umahi, we have found a worthy successor to President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023.

“The man’s antecedents of excellence speak volume and his achievements in Ebonyi State are there for everyone to see.

“We urge other bodies across the entire country to join in the support for David Umahi’s presidential bid as this is surest way for Nigeria to go,” he added.
