Fusion774, a political support and economic advocacy group, has urged a former Chief of Army Staff and Nigerian Ambassador to Benin Republic, Tukur Buratai, to join the 2023 presidential race.
The National Coordinator of Fussion774, Sediq Jikta, made the call at a news conference on Friday, in Abuja.
Mr Jikta said the call by members of the group was borne out of the security challenges facing the country, saying the threats posed to the nation’s national security had been of immense concern.
He said the 23 years of Nigeria’s democratic experiment had witnessed different threats to its survival such as civil disturbances, which required experienced hands to pilot its affairs.
According to him, Nigeria is currently in very challenging times and it is important to decide on the right leadership, a leadership with the capacity and ability to deliver and make the country work.
The coordinator said the achievement of Mr Buratai as a service chief in the fight against insurgency was a pointer to his sterling quality and qualification to vie for the highest office in the land.
