Former Governor of Zamfara State, Ahmad Sani Yerima has revealed why he is confident of becoming Nigeria’s next president, Naija News reports.
Yerima who is vying for the nation’s number one political position under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said his support base is why he knows that he could win the 2023 general election.
The former lawmaker said he has over 15 million registered supporters that will cast their votes to make him the next leader after President Muhammadu Buhari.

Naija News understands that Yerima made the revelation while speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday, May 10, 2022.
“We are using technology; we have an application that is available on iOS and Android devices. You can go and see; I have more than 15 million supporters now with their phone numbers and pictures,” Yerima said.
The presidential aspirant said: “If you look at previous elections, most of the presidents that have won have won with 15 to 16 million votes so I’m confident that with the kind of followers and supporters I have already, then I may become the president Insha Allah.”
Yerima also boast about his past performance as a state governor and the experiences he had in different phases of administrative coast in the country.
He said: “I have served this country in many places, I was governor for two terms and senator for twelve years. I also worked in the Central Bank so Nigerians believe that I have seen a lot in governance and have enough experience to run this country, and my performance in previous offices has made the people confident in me that I can handle the higher office.”
Speaking about how he developed a kin interest in succeeding President Buhari, Yerima said it was the response and assessment he got from social media that pushed him to join the presidential race first.
“In this age of technology, you can assess yourself through social media which is very open and transparent. I have seen responses from Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms and the interactions I have with my over 1,000 support groups that have been working since 2019, my inspirations did not start today,” he noted.
Naija News understands that Yerima will have to battle the likes of the National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi among others through the party’s primaries to get a chance to compete for the seat of power.
