Several youth groups across the nation have endorsed Senator Godswill Akpabio for 2023 presidency.
This decision was made at a meeting chaired by Mallam Inua Mohammed, Abiodun Ogun, Ifeanyi Uche and Dr Bassey Akpa.
In a statement made available to Legit.ng, they said Akpabio is a nationalist, a non-tribalistic leader who as a governor of Akwa Ibom state had indigenes of other states as ADC, CSO and others without any forms of discrimination.
According the the convener of Northern Youths Congress for unity, Ahlaji Mahmud Idris, what Nigeria need today is a man who will build on the achievements of President Buhari. A man who will sustain the peace, unity and progress in the country. He said Akpabio has demonstrated this quality as a governor, minister and a senator of the federal republic of Nigeria.

VP Yemi Osinbajo and the 2023 presidency
Now to one of the most talked-about issues in the political space; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the 2023 presidency.
Though Osinbajo has not indicated any interest in the presidency, there have been mounting pressures from his supporters asking him to throw his hats into the ring.
Coincidentally, in December 2021, the vice president visited Reverend Odikanwa at the Annual Convention of The Restoration Life Assembly Int’l.
At the event, he spoke on how he emerged as the nation's number two citizen in 2015.
So, as someone who appears to have a kind of close relationship with the VP, I asked Pastor Odikanwa if he supports those who are calling on him to contest for president?
