Amalgamation of Kaduna State Youth Groups has declared support for governorship bid of retired Assistant Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service, Bashir Abubakar.
The spokesman of the group, Comrade Sagir Adam, declared the group’s support for the gubernatorial ambition of the retired Customs officer during a solidarity meeting held in Zaria on Thursday.
Adam said members of the group, drawn from various women and youth development associations in Kaduna State will support the aspirant because of his previous achievements.
He said that Abubakar had always supported women and youths to be self reliant and employers of labour through his various empowerment programmes.
“We feel that if ACG Bashir Abubakar (rtd) succeeded in his bid, women and youths will certainly benefit more from his various skills and talents development initiative.
“I therefore, urge youth associations across the state, to come forth and rally round him for a successful governorship bid,” he said.
Adam said that the group had on April 21, bought the declaration of interest form for the retired ACG under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to enable him vie for the governorship seat.
