KEBBI GUBER: Youths Demonstrate, Urges Malami To Contest

Kebbi State youths under the aegis of All Progressives Congress (APC) Youths Support (KYS) on Wednesday staged a demonstration, urging the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami to run for the state governor.   

The youths were seen in Birnin Kebbi with placards with inscriptions as the youths in: ‘we in Kebbi are unanimous for Malami’s project; ‘constitution is superior to electoral act’; and ‘Malami is Kebbian’ and ‘Baba Buhari please allows Malami to run’, among others.

The Chairman of the group, Malam Muhammad Ruwa who spoke on behalf of the group at the end of the demonstration, pleaded with Malami to annul his earlier resolve of not contesting for the state governorship position come 2023.

“We are, please, calling on Malami to help us as youths from the 21 local government areas of the state to listen to our demands and recant his earlier decision, to come and contest in order to continue with the developmental projects the APC- led government has started.

“We have no an iota of doubt that if you don’t come for our rescue and upliftment as youths, we will force you to do so via legal action. We will take you to court for redress in order that our demands will be entertained, and heeded,” he said

Ruwa also described Malami as a good leader with sterling qualities of leadership for his myriad assistance to the people of the state.

In the same vein, the Women Leader of the group, Hussaina Sa’idu, opined that the women in the state were calling on Malami to contest the governorship position based on his antecedent especially on the empowerment of women and children through his NGOs.

According to her, “Such programmes have empowered and continued to mobilise the populace, especially the women to achieve higher income level in the state,” she said.

While responding, Alhaji Yahaya Koko, the Manager of Kadi Malami Foundation, assured the group that he would channel their demand to the minister of justice for onward consideration.

“Malami is a leader that every state wants to have as its governor, considering his immense contribution to poverty alleviation, provision of social amenities to remotest areas, empowering unemployed youth and women as well as Small and Medium Scale Farmers and businessmen and women, among others, in the state.

“We appreciate your concern and love for Malami and we assure you that your message will get to him promptly. It is our hope and prayer that he will consider your demand and rescind his earlier decision,” Koko said.
