The NEF has discussed the ageing presidential candidates in the upcoming 2023 Nigerian election, namely Atiku and Tinubu.
NEF’s spokesman emphasized the need for experienced and competent individuals with integrity to surround the elected president and help fix Nigeria.
The NEF has not yet revealed its preferred candidate for the election but is meeting with Ohanaeze to finalize its decision.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hakeem Baba-Ahmed on Tuesday said the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election, Bola Tinubu are ageing.
This online media platform learnt that Baba-Ahmed stated this during an interview on Channels TV.
Baba-Ahmed’s statement is coming days after the convener of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Ango Abdullahi said the forum has chosen its preferred presidential candidate.
He, however, did not reveal the identity of the presidential candidate, adding that NEF and Ohanaeze are meeting on the candidate to support in the forthcoming election.
Baba-Ahmed, while speaking on the 2023 general elections on Tuesday, said Atiku and Tinubu need experienced people with integrity around them to succeed if elected president in 2023.
He said, “Most of the front runners now are Atiku and Tinubu are ageing and even at their best, they can’t do everything they want to do. They need excellent sort of people around them, people with knowledge of how to fix Nigeria. This is the most important thing.
“The second thing is to find people with integrity, not those who will convert public money to theirs. They should be good, competent people full of ideas and people who have evidence that they fear good.”
