The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it already started looking for its presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 general election.
The national youth leader of the party Barrister Ismail Ahmed disclosed this at a meeting with stakeholders at the Manpower Development Institute in Dutse.
He said the party is in search of a presidential candidate that could bring millions of votes in subsequent elections.
“For the first time in a long time, President Muhammadu Buhari will be out of the equation in 2023 with an entirely fresh candidate that will be expected to win elections for the party”, he said.
He said the party will face a stiff political war in the coming 2023 presidential election as the main opposition party PDP has about 14 states with mega resources to finance the party.
The meeting which took place between the national youth leaders and other stakeholders in Dutse comes at a time the All Progressive Congress APC is in a dilemma of a political candidate that would have a pedigree President that would guarantee mass votes for the party.
Jigawa State APC chairman Alhaji Muhammad Dikuma said for many years youth were neglected making them less important in society.
“it is very unfortunate that youth in the north were neglected for a very long time and their future has been tempered making them unproductive”
