2023 Election: Northern Group Pledges Support For Sowore’s Presidential Bid
A Northern youth group under the ageis of the Arewa Movement for Generational Power-Shift (AMGPS) has expressed support for the presidential aspiration of the African Action Congress (AAC) National Chairman and Sahara Reporters Publisher, Omoyele Sowore.
The group said they resolved to back Sowore, describing him as a perfect personification of the Not-Too-Young-Run phenomena.
The group’s coordinator, Lawal Mukhtar Doguwa, told newsmen that their support for Mr Sowore was informed chiefly by his rare courage and steadfastness in challenging the status quo.
The AMGPS noted that Mr Sowore had courageously endured and withstood several persecutions and violations in his selfless bid to protect and promote the rights of citizens, particularly the Nigerian youth whom he had eminently been representing.
“If Nigerian youth wish to hear the truth, they should be told that their future is being toyed with by an old stock of leaders who are ill-prepaired and ill-equipped to lead except for their personal greed for power and acquisition of fantastic wealth.
“To rescue our future from the margins of irrelevance, impotence, inconsequence and decay in the context of the current global order which currently runs on the basis of values and practices that we need to understand, adapt to or create alternatives that suit our cultures, circumstances and interests, we need the courage, audacity and hope of such young men as Mr Sowore.
“We find in Sowore, the image of a leader with a passionate belief in the organic links between generations, a budding great statesman, a mentor, a guardian, a living history and an embodiment of all the exemplary courageous qualities young Nigerians should strive to achieve,” Doguwa said.
He however called on the youth of Northern Nigeria to mobilise for a rigorous campaign for Sowore, who he described as one of their own.
