The group explained that Sylva, with his vast experience and performance when he served as Bayelsa state governor and his performance as Minister is capable of uniting the country and growing the economy.
Sa’adu said “Our conviction as youths is borne out of his experience, expertise and commitment. What endeared him to us and indeed most Nigerians is that he is a gentle technochract, administrator and passionate about the welfare of Nigerians.
“Having carefully consulted with the necessary individuals and groups, we have resolved to collectively and massively canvass support from both women and youths in the 19 northern states for Sylva.”
He appealed to the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to ensure that the Minister Sylva picks its presidential ticket for the 2023 general elections.
Also speaking, Lawan Yelwa called on Nigerians at all levels to support the Minister in his bid to move the country forward.
“Arewa youths have called with loud voice to the minister who was also the former Governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva to declare his interest and contest for the seat of the president of Nigeria in the forthcoming 2023 elections,” he appealed.
