Next APC Presidential Candidate Will Not Be As Popular As Buhari – Osibanjo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has disclosed his worries over the fact that the next APC presidential candidate would not be as popular as incumbent Muhammadu Buhari.

The Vice President who stated this while commissioning the youth arm of the All-Progressives Congress to recruit millions of Nigerian youths ahead of the 2023 general elections, called on them to work hard now to get the younger people in their communities and societies into the party and to see themselves as part of the party, in their hundreds of thousands, in their millions, so as to guarantee victory in 2023.

“Today, the APC can win elections. Why not? We have a very popular president who can control significant votes. We have partners everywhere,” claimed Mr Osinbajo.

 “Whereas, in the coming years, when we do not have such a political leader who is as popular as the president, you are going to need to do the hard work. We can’t assume that the votes will all come in” Osibanjo stated further.

According to the Independent National Electoral Commission voter register in 2019, 42,938,458 youths between 18 and 35 constitute 51.11 per cent of total voters.

Under Mr Buhari’s regime, youth unemployment in Nigeria has risen fivefold from 6.4 per cent in 2010, hitting 33.3 per cent as of the last quarter of 2020, the National Bureau of Statistics reported.
