The group noted that Kalu is the best presidential material in 2023, urging the ruling All Progressives Congress to commence a process of adopting him as the sole candidate of the party because of his managerial skill and experience.
“This may sound odd in the eyes of Nigerians especially those nursing the intention to run for the number one seat in the country. Be that as it may, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu’s acceptability demonstrates the resolve of the youths in the 19 Northern states to support him in succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari” They said

“We are planning for national convention and the group is right to support the candidate of their choice.We all know Kalu as a result-oriented leader with a proven track record that can sustain and consolidate the gains of democracy recorded by the current administration, hence Kalu is one of the best for the APC in 2023”
“He is a presidential material with experience in the private sector, executive and legislative arm of government, We are totally convinced that what Nigeria needs right now is a courageous and vibrant leader who is capable of managing a complex nation like Nigeria” he said.
