Northern youths under the aegis of the Arewa Youth Assembly have called on successful entrepreneurs in various sectors of the private economy such as Dr Okonjo-Iweala, Alhaji Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola, to join the 2023 presidential race to salvage Nigeria.
The group in a statement urged the entrepreneurs who are notable for successful records in their industry to join the race and use their wealth of experience to move the country forward.
According to the Arewa Youth Assembly, an entrepreneur that can grow wealth, bear risk in such conditions found in Nigeria, is surely suited to better the fortunes of the nation, adding that Nigeria will flourish under such a person.
The statement wandered why a country like Nigeria that has great and intelligent minds with positive reputations all over the world, in the likes of Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Mr Femi Otedola, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, Mr Herbert Wigwe, Mr Mike Adenuga, Mr Aig Imoukhuede, Mr Fola Adeola, Alhaji Tunde Folawiyo, and Mr Atedo Peterside, who are boardroom Czars with vast wealth of knowledge on entrepreneurship, would let Nigeria be run by others who lack such knowledge.
The Arewa Youth Assembly noted with strong optimism that the presence of entrepreneurs in politics will serve as mediators between individuals with economic ideas and the body of Government responsible for making and implementing such policies to have a harmonious outcome pushing the country further economically.
