We will reject any presidential aspirant that is above 70, northern youths warns Buhari, Atiku and others

The Coalition of Northern Youths has advised President Muhammadu Buhari and former vice president Atiku Abubakar not to contest the 2019 Presidential election, saying Nigeria needs a generational shift.

The group in a communique signed by its spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman disclosed this at the end of their summit in Kaduna on Monday.

According to the group, they would not support any Presidential Aspirant that was above 70 years. They disclosed that they had already informed President Buhari of their decision and advised him to look for a younger person who has the integrity like him to run for the presidency.

They noted that young Nigerians have paid their dues in national development effort but have been left to suffer from the suffocating consequences of the prevailing exclusive and defeatist leadership selection process being imposed on the country over the years, by succeeding ruling elite.

The group frowned at the seeming endorsement by some northern leaders of a brand of restructuring that clearly places the region at a disadvantage and maintained that the north will not settle for any restructuring plan that was not total, comprehensive and holistic.
