Yerima Shettima, the president of Socio-cultural group, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), has ruled out the possibility of supporting any presidential aspirant, who is above the age of 60 ahead of the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.

Yerima said he is in support of former Head of State, General Ibrahim Babangida’s (rtd) statement that Nigerians should look for a younger person as their president in 2023.

Speaking with journalists on Saturday, November 6, Yerima said;

“We have made our position very clear that we will not pitch our tent with any old generation. This is not because it is not their right to contest, but you can rest assured that we will only campaign for young generations.

“We will be looking forward to those that are in their 40s and 50s.

“We have been sensitising the youths on those who have been recycling themselves over and over again without being able to provide answers to our issues.

“So, we want to, for once, do it for ourselves and I am sure we have the strength to do it. We are looking inward for capable hands in the younger generation this time around,” he said.

On restructuring, Yerima said: “I have been talking about this over concentration of power and if we continue to do this, we will continue to have funny people with funny characters occupying some of these political spaces.
