A group under the aegis, Coalition of Christian Youth in the North, Gombe State chapter, on Saturday, endorsed Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda, popularly known as El-Dabi for president in the 2023 general elections.
Our correspondent reports that Dauda, an Abuja-based businessman, is one of the presidential aspirants under All Progressive Congress (APC).
Mr Ismail Isyaku Abubakar, the chairman of the Coalition in the state stated this in Gombe during a press conference.
Abubakar said Dauda’s youthful disposition, sound character and proven track record of integrity and honesty had endeared him to youths in the state and beyond.
He described Dauda’s ambition to join the 2023 presidential race under the APC as a welcomed development in view of his capacity to carry the youth along, create employment and help run an inclusive government.
“Dr Ibrahim Dauda is counted as one of the very hard-working person who leaves no stone unturned to complete any assigned task.
“He brings excellent credentials, character, values, and vision, which will help solve Nigeria’s challenges and set us on the path of greatness.”
The chairman said Nigeria deserved a honest leader that would manage her resources for the overall wellbeing and welfare of Nigerians.
“El-Dabi is the man for the job because he is honest, intelligent, vibrant, competent, and hard-working.”
While appealing to APC delegates to elect Dauda, Abubakar said the presidential aspirant had all the qualifications required to be the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Beyond any doubt, he is among the best qualified person to run for the Presidential seat.
“He has done it in divers areas and if given the chance, Nigeria will be better for it.”
He said his coalition would leverage all social media platforms as well as other means to galvanise supports for the emergence of Dauda as the next president if APC considered him as the party’s candidate.
Abubakar appealed to members of his coalition and other youths in Gombe State to take advantage of the ongoing voter card registration to register to vote in 2023.
“Your voter card is your right to vote; go and get your cards.”
He further appealed to youths across the state to embrace peace while playing politics, adding that peaceful coexistence was necessary for the advancement of democracy in Gombe State and country.
