Northern Youths, under the aegis of All Northern Youths Project (ANYP), have mobilised support for the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to vie for the 2023 Presidency.

A statement by the group, yesterday, stated: “the campaign for 2023 for the deposed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi ll has kicked off officially in Kaduna, the defunct capital of Northern Region.
“The movement, pioneered by Nigerian youths, has already taken delivery of about 12 vehicles of different grades and brands, donated to it for logistic purposes from prominent Nigerians.”
Besides, some of the campaign vehicles, displayed and adorned with Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s photographs, dominated the venue of a press briefing, organised by the group.

Nigeria is a sinking ship and needs someone of high intellectual ability like him to rescue… “
