The Youths Stakeholders’ Forum (YOSF) is drumming support for Governor Mai Mala Buni to re-contest the Yobe State governorship in 2023.

Announcing Buni’s endorsement, at the weekend, in Potiskum, YOSF’s Chairman, Abubakar Sabo, disclosed that the youth were drawn from Yobe South senatorial district, comprising Fune, Fika, Potiskum and Nangere councils.

He said: “As the 2023 polls draw nearer, it is inevitable to identify the APC critical youth stakeholders in the senatorial district. We are to collectively brainstorm and look inwards, politically, before highlighting our challenges to proffer solutions in the various sectors of the economy.”

Noting the forum’s satisfaction with Buni’s leadership style, he stated that they resolved to unanimously endorse him to re-contest in 2023.

Members of the forum also appreciated the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in the state for the execution of various projects in the health, education, housing, agricultural and transport sectors.

They said the empowerment and inclusion of youths in governance were to enable them to deliver more votes to the party in 2023, urging youths to unite and avoid thuggery and campaigns of calumny.

“Some people from Yobe East and North senatorial districts are sabotaging the efforts of Buni through marginalising our members from the district,” Sabo alleged, lamenting that the people in the four councils were helpless.

MEANWHILE, Yobe stakeholders and associates have purchased APC’s Expression of Interest and Nomination forms for Buni to re-contest the governorship.

The stakeholders comprise APC local council party chairmen, representatives of business and community leaders and party supporters at the grassroots.

Presenting the forms to the Yobe APC Chairman, Mohammed Gadaka, in Damaturu, at the weekend, the Deputy Governor, Idi Gubana, disclosed: “Today’s presentation of the nomination form of interest to Buni to re-contest election, was based on the administration’s performance in the last three years.”

According to him, the completed projects in the health, education, housing and infrastructural sectors have raised the living conditions of the people.

He noted that this motivated the stakeholders to procure the APC nomination form for the governor to run for a second term at the 2023 polls.

Gubana, therefore, called on party supporters, groups and associations, as well as the general public, to support Buni.
