Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai (retired), a former Chief of Army Staff, declared on Monday that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will continue to be the opposition in the general elections of 2023.

Buratai advised the youths to support the right candidates in the elections when he made this statement at the APC Young Leaders Summit in Abuja.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, is running for president in the 2023 elections on behalf of the APC.

 

The former army commander also exhorted the youths to follow in the footsteps of the nation’s founding fathers by assuming leadership roles when they were young, like Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe, and former Prime Minister Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, among others.

Buratai said: “You must mobilise the electorate to ensure that they come out en masse to vote for the right candidate and I believe you know who I am referring to.

“The APC with the good support of the youth is the party to beat.

“Our great founding fathers of blessed memory, including Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Tafawa Balewa, Ahmadu Bello and Obafemi Awolowo were in their prime as youths when they took the mantle of leadership of the country.

“The youths of today could do the same if they are determined.”
