Emerging report indicates that the Arewa Youth Assembly has called on some Nigerians in the private sector to contest for the 2023 Presidency, to bring the desired change Nigeria and Nigerians need, instead of the typical Politicians that have failed woefully to move the nation forward, despite many years of leadership.
The Northern youths said that people like Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Mike Adenuga, among others, should contest for the Presidency in 2023, to rescue Nigeria from its current state.
They noted that these Nigerians in the private sector have the managerial acumen and leadership skills to lead the country to greatness.
The Arewa Youth Assembly made the call in a statement titled: “Private Sector Players to Join the 2023 Presidential Race”, which was jointly signed by its Speaker, Mohammed Danlami, and National Clerk, Desmond Minakaro.
The statement reads: “In a country like Nigeria, that has great and intelligent minds with positive reputations all over the world, the likes of Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, Bode Augusto, Segun Agbaje, Fola Adeola, Tunde Folawiyo, Mr. Atedo Peterside, Kola Adesina, Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, Mr. Mike Adenuga, Mr. Akinwumi Adesina, Herbert Wigwe, and Aig Imoukhuede, who are Boardroom Czars with a vast wealth of knowledge on entrepreneurship, why let Nigeria be run by others who lack such knowledge?
“We are calling and pleading with the successful private sector players to join the 2023 Presidential race, they need to stand up and be counted.”
