2023: Arewa Youths Deny Endorsing Goodluck Jonathan For President

The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) denied backing former President Goodluck Jonathan as its favored presidential candidate in 2023 on Thursday.

When speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, Alhaji Musa Saidu, a leader of the ACF, stated this.

Saidu, who is also the leader of the Arewa community in the South-South and South-East, was responding to news that Jonathan had been backed by a coalition of northern groups for the 2023 election.

He said, “There was never a time the ACF or the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) endorsed a particular aspirant for the presidential election.

“I was to say clearly that no coalition or any group has the mandate to speak for the North.

“I actually read a statement credited to one Abdulazeez Suleiman, the spokesperson for the coalition claiming that the North has endorsed Jonathan for 2023.

“I want to say that this is not true.”

He added, “It’s absolutely misleading for a group to speak on behalf of the North without any mandate, doing this is a mischief and tantamount to creating confusion among interest groups.”
