I will contest presidency in 2023, says Yerima


A former Governor of Zamfara State, Ahmad Sani Yerima has declared that he will contest the presidency in the 2023 general elections.

Yerima announced this in Bauchi yesterday when he visited the family of Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi over the death of his wife and the family of late Prime Minister, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa over the death of his last surviving wife last year.

He said various political groups in different parts of the country had approached him to contest the position, adding that he responded indifferently but queried them over the timing while most of them urged him to declare his ambition early enough as it is done in developed climes.

“By the grace of Allah, I will contest for the seat in 2023,” he said, adding that after serving as governor and as senator for eight years each, there was no other position he could contest other than the president or vice president,” he stated.
