Former Zamfara Governor Senator Ahmed Yerima has joined the 2023 presidential race.
Yerima, who spoke to State House Correspondents after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, said he would be focusing on three critical areas of needs, including insecurity, poverty and ignorance.
Yerima, who caught national attention when he introduced the Shari’a legal code in running Zamfara as Governor, also said he would be picking the APC nomination and expression of interest forms immediately.
“I’m here this afternoon to inform Mr. President of my intention to participate in the 2023 elections and to contest the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I’m going to, insha Allah, purchase my forms today and officially declare this afternoon.
“So, I have three points as well; to fight insecurity, fight poverty, and ignorance,” he said.
