    The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, on Friday, issued a warning ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

    National President of AYCF, Yerima Shettima, warned that the group would not allow the recycling of old, weak, and sick Nigerians as president.

    In a statement he signed and issued to DAILY POST, Shettima said democracy does not encourage a weak, tired and politically compromised leader.

    According to Shettima: “Going forward, the AYFC will never allow the recycling of old, weak and sick citizens as leaders of this nation, moreso in a fast-changing and competitive world.

    “Much as democracy gives everyone the right to contest for any elective office, it does not encourage the emergence of tired, weak, politically compromised, sick and overly unproductive persons as leaders of this modern society”.

    Shettima’s comment is coming at a time when speculations are rife that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar may contest for the presidency in 2023.

    Atiku, who lost the 2019 presidential election to President Muhammadu Buhari, is believed to be nursing another presidential election.

    Similarly, Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, is also believed to be nursing a presidential ambition in 2023.

    However, both Tinubu and Atiku are yet to declare their intention, despite the speculations.
