Northern Youths Tell Atiku, Lamido To Step Down For Dankwambo



Governor Hassan Dankwambo Of Gombe

The Arewa Youths Coalition have urged ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, former National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the PDP, Ahmed Makarfi and ex-Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido to drop their presidential ambition for Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo.

Speaking at a rally organised to drum support for the governor in Kaduna on Saturday, Chairman of the coalition, Abdullahi Jika, asked the three and others with presidential ambition in the PDP to throw their weight behind Dankwambo.

He said Nigeria needs a young mind and vibrant leader like Dankwambo who has shown example of what good leadership should be in Gombe State.

Jika said: “Everybody in the country knows that, we are not where we ought to be as a country. That is why we are here to call on Governor Dankwambo of Gombe State to come and contest and rescue our country from the myriad of challenges bedevilling us.

“We have chosen Dankwambo because we have seen what he has done in Gombe State. He is a detribalised Nigerian. He has solutions to our economic and security challenges and he can move the country to the promised land.

“Therefore, we are calling on other contenders within the party to put their ambition aside and support Dankwambo with their resources, their contacts and everything within their possession, because PDP is one big family.”
