2015: Northern Youths Urge Buhari To Support Atiku For APC Presidential Ticket

Atiku Abubakar-Muhammadu BuhariNorthern youth groups under the aegis of the Northern Youth Voters Forum (NYVF), have urged a former Head of State and national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), to support the presidential bid of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in 2015.

The group hinged its call on Atiku’s political clout, which it said was potent enough to send the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) packing out of power.

Addressing journalists yesterday at Arewa House in Kaduna, the youths dressed in T-shirts and caps emblazoned with Atiku’s picture, said they endorsed the Turakin Adamawa as the presidential flag bearer of the APC in 2015.

National Coordinator of NYVF, Comrade Idris Ibrahim, said the decision was taken after series of meetings and consultations held across the states of the northern region.

“General Buhari contested for presidency three consecutive times but was not successful, so we think that it is not wise for another opportunity to be accorded him for fear that it may turn out the same way as the previous ones. We are using this opportunity to urge all the aspirants to give their total support towards making Atiku the President of Nigeria come 2015”, he said.

Ibrahim also appealed to General Buhari to join Atiku’s movement in making Nigeria one of the best. “We need your support, co-operation and contribution to save the Nigerian security and economic challenges”, he added.


  1. Buhari should swallow his pride, be a statesman and support Atiku Abubakar who is younger, more vibrant and a detribalised Nigerian for president.
    Atiku will definitely make a very good president and I strongly believe 2015 is his time to shine and make Nigeria great again. Is time for pdp-led government to go, We want others that are prepared to do the job to come in because PDP has failed.
    Chibok girls still missinf after 100 days plus and no clue of the young girls way about, This government needs to learn from Cameroon who brought back the deputy PM’s wife in less than 48 hours.
    Change is for Nigeria come 2015 and Atiku Abubakar will make us proud

  2. We still need Gen to rescued us from the evil men .Atiku is one of them so let him go back to his PDP there is no Room for him in APC . APC is for Gen or Kwankoso for eight years he spends as VP what’s did he contributed to north even his state Adamawa sponsoring boys to seek our support will not guaranty him our mandate no way for him. APC is not designed for him

  3. This time we re wise enough Atiku has no way for known let him wait for his time to work for the party and for us to accept his repentance b4 he seek 4 any sit please we should not be desived with essue of young or old Atiku is not young GEJ is young as you people says during last election did he delivered d answer is no our problem in this country is beyond Atiku we need credible leader like Gen and Kwankoso those that cannot compromise untruth. We have no reservation than supporting Gen
