Barely two weeks after he received endorsement from the College of Bishops and Imams, former Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okjorocha’s 2023 presidential ambition, Thursday received further endorsement from a coalition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Support Groups across Northern Nigeria

Party supporters and faithful as well as representatives of non-government groups from across the North gathered in Kano to announce their support for the presidential ambition of Okorocha, who is also the senator representing Imo West senatorial district at the National Assembly.

Speaking at the Menna Event Centre, National Coordinator of the Coalition, Sadiq Abubakar asserted that no living Nigerian, in recent times, had equalled the contributions of Okorocha towards the development of the North.

Abubakar noted tha Okorocha, through his Foundation, had touched the lives of Northerners by establishing free schools in Kano, Zaria, Sokoto, Bauchi, Jos and Adamawa States for orphans and children of the less privileged members of the Northern society.

He added that it was noteworthy that in these schools, uniforms were issued free of charge to students while feeding and shelter were extended to them without a fee.

‘He is a unifying figure between the North and the South due to his understanding of the cultures of the people of the North and the people of the East,’ he added.

Also speaking at the public lecture, the National Woman Leader of the Coalition for Youth Awareness, Jamila Abdullahi, appealed to Northerners, particularly women to go for the Presidency of Okorocha, adding tha with his vast experience in public service, Okorocha would be coming to salvage Nigeria from its present political, economic and security challenges.
