The groups in a joint press statement made on Thursday, observed that their endorsement of the candidature of Atiku was because, “his programmes contain the most thought-out agenda for the youths.”

The groups include the Save Nigeria APC Group, Turaki Network for Change, Atiku Youth Assembly, Atiku Youth Vanguard, Turaki Network East Alliance, Igbo Progressive Forum, Northern Youth Voters Forum, Northern Grassroots Advocacy Group and Raba Gargadama Nationwide.

Others are National Youth Advocacy for Good Governance, APC Youth Congress, ABUFON 2015, Turaki Support Group, North East Progressive Movement, Mohammed Dukku-Atiku Support Group, Bauchi Youth Coalition for Turaki, North-East Integrated Youth Organisation.

The rest are APC Women/Youth League, Bauchi Assembly of Youths and Political Actors for Progressive Change, Atangha Atangha, Delta Horizon Group, Rescue Youth Group, Special Disability Aid in Action and Bauchi Youth Coalition for Turaki.

According to the group, “Having listened to the Turaki Adamawa at different fora and during his presidential bid declaration speech, we have all come to a common and indisputable conclusion that he (Atiku) is ready more than anyone else among those contending for the presidency in 2015, to accommodate the youths and address issues of concern to us if he becomes the president of this country.

“Consequently, we have decided to throw our unalloyed support behind his candidature and also encourage other youth groups across the country to take the same decision,” the groups said in the joint statement.
