Youths within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have called on members and leaders of the party to allow former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, come 2023 when his tenure must have ended.
The youths, under the aegis of APC National Awareness for Youth Vanguard, while making the call, lauded President Buhari for removing whatever doubts in the minds of Nigerians regarding his rumoured third term bid, saying the president had demonstrated uncommon statesmanship.
The youth group within the APC made the call on Monday in a statement jointly signed by its National Coordinator, Alhaji Muktar Abubakar and National Secretary, Mr Dayo Ogunjebe respectively, warning those it called mischief makers who were angling to profit from the rumoured third term bid of the president to desist from the act.
“We are calling on members and the leadership of the APC to look towards the direction of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023. This is a man who has paid his dues within the party and we believe whoever has made any form of sacrifice must be entitled to benefit from the fruits of his labour,” the group said.
