Former Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai (rtd), says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is the party to beat in the 2023 general election, as it has all it takes to win.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Buratai stated this at the Progressives Young Leaders Summit of the APC in Abuja on Monday.
He urged Nigerian youths to mobilise the electorate to vote for candidates that will secure their future and ensure the country’s development in the election.
He said, “You must mobilise the electorate to ensure that they come out en masse to vote for the right candidate and I believe you know who I am referring to.
“The APC with the good support of the youth is the party to beat.’’
Buratai also advised youths to be actively involved in the development process of the country.
He pointed out that the desire of youths globally was to see that their country progressed in all areas.
“Our great founding fathers of blessed memory, including Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Tafawa Balewa, Ahmadu Bello and Obafemi Awolowo were in their prime as youths when they took the mantle of leadership of the country.
