Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum says it will take steps to mobilise Northern youths to rescue the region from the inept leadership that has kept the people in a perennial political bondage.
The Northern youths, in a statement signed by their National President, Shettima Yerima, and made available to our correspondent, said the quality of leadership in the north is disappointing and embarrassing to the political expertise and integrity of the region that has been known for.
The Youth Forum also expressed displeasure with the worsening state of security in the North under the current administrations in the 19 Northern states.
The forum said they are in a top gear for mobilizing the youths to immediately takeover the democratic space from the majority of old brigade and their cronies who have blocked their colleagues who meant well for the region and brought us into the mess we’re in today.
Adding that spate of killings and kidnappings can be tackled by voting out the current crop of old and weak forces as governors.
The forum therefore call on all lovers of greater future for the North to join hands in this renewed effort to give the North a more deserved sense of direction.
