Arewa Youth Consulta­tive Forum (AYCF) has said that 2023 Presidency will remain in the north.

The leader of the Forum says this on Sunday while countering the Southern Gov­ernors’ Forum agreement on the issue of zoning of the 2023 presiden­tial ticket.

He said that North has the numerical strength to determine who lead the country stating that they will not support any zoning arrangement.

Naijablog gathered that Yerima Shetimma, who is leader of the Forum disclose this to Daily Independent.

He said, “That is their per­sonal opinion and nobody can stop them from expressing their views. We are also say­ing that any political party that zones any presidency to anywhere is on its own.

“Definitely, we will not key into any zonal arrangement or partnership. They can also be rest assured that we have also taken our position on 2023 presidency and no governor can intimidate anybody. No individual or any group can intimidate anybody to say that power should shift to any region.
We are insisting on merit and competence and we are going to use our strength as well as our man power in the Northern part of the country to ensure that there is nothing like zoning in 2023. No zonal arrangement will work.

“It is unfortunate that you have a lawyer, who is supposed to be a learned per­son, who is a governor. The language he is using is very disappointing. I am talking about the governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu. He cannot tell anybody that it is a must that they zone. We are practising democracy and nobody can impose his wish on others”.
