Renowned human rights activist and co-convener of Bring Back Our Girls Campaign, Aisha Yesufu has taken to her official Twitter handle to react to the recent update about some powerful Northern groups planning to bring back Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023. Recall that there have been several consultations made by a handful of politicians across the country, making known their ambition ahead of the 2023 general election.
As of today, reports had it that the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo has informed the president about his interest to contest in the forthcoming presidential election. However, the president of the Northern Youth Council, Isah Abubakar, while speaking on Arise TV made it known that Nigeria needs someone that would bring back her National unity and be able to withstand whatever is thrown at him. He, however, made it known that Jonathan is the right choice for that. Speaking further, he stated that they are working behind the scene to beef up support from the North for the former president and convince him to throw his hat in the race.
