The Yoruba Youth Forum (YYF) has indicated its resolve to back the Major Hamza Almustapha movement for the presidency in 2023.
The organisation pointed out that it came to this conclusion in veiw of the fact that, it has discovered that Almustapha is fits into the category of the caliber of those who were said could lead Nigeria.
The organisation pointed out that the situation in Nigeria has called for who could fix the country and bail it out of the present decay without being sentimental and parochial about where the person is from but the equality of the person.
The YYF in a stamemt signed by its National President Comrade Abiodun Olusegun Bolarinwa stated that the YYF was convinced that with the ways Almustapha has handled the Nigerian project and his loyalty to the cause of Nigeria, he would be a right candidate to aspire to govern Nigeria.
Comrade Abiodun olusegun Bolarinwa argued that the YYF has not been the only organisation to suggest the candidacy of Almustapha for the Presidency, as other organizations especially some youth, who saw the same quality in him have been out in the past that he is one of the down to earth person, who could rule Nigeria with honesty of purpose.
The YYF indicated that though, the organisation and others who are bent on cohersing Almustapha for Presidency believed that he has the capability to rule becaude he did not believe in the disintegration of Nigeria but her unity.
The YYF indicated that Almustapha believed that Nigeria would be great but needs a leader who is upright, detribalised, focused and not selfish and self centered to focus on a particular section or a particular ethnic of Nigeria, Saying that Almustapha is considered as a leader and fighter of Justice.
Comrade Abiodun Bolarinwa declared that going by what he said in 2019 that if Nigerians want him to contest he will come out, that is the more reason that the organisation who have been studying the situation wants him to contest the Presidency.
The YYF noted that even Almustapha like other leaders in Nigeria has paid the huge price for nation building and just for the political system which definitely has now turned a good man to a criminal.
“To YYF Almustapha, his like a rising star on the horizons whose Ray’s are not just about to dim”
“We.know his true worth and we are convinced about and bent that his pedigree can fetch him new political converts that would make him swing the next poll in his favour.”
The YYF argued that as a detribalised person who is not a religious bigot, in 2018, he met with the United Christian leaders of the Eagles Eye Forum that backed him in 2019 for the Presidential race.
The Chistian organisation wanted him to contest the Presidency base on his integrity loyalty and honesty to the cause he believed in
, Ponting out that he is the kind of person that it is needed to rule Nigeria.
The president of the ÝYF said” “has a man who had been in the security architecture of Nigeria, Almustapha who has been expressing his concern about the security conditon of Nigeria, said that he would want the security system in Nigeria overhauled.
The YYF has giving the assurance that a new system of establishing the tool gate that would be managed and monitored over the years, to be sustained properly would serve as a buffer of uncovering illegal weapons and movement of criminals.
The YYF also believed that the Almustapha Presidency would tackle insecurity, from the multifaceted angles while the EFCC would be managed as an organisation that would tackle corruption and not as a monkey given a thread to tackle an Elephant.
