AYCF President, Ambassador Yerima Shettima dropped the hint, during a media parley at his office in Kaduna on Saturday November 6, 2021.

According to him, AYCF is yet to have a candidate on its beam, but would put several factors before pitching tents.

Though he did not mention names of any politician, the age limit pegged above 60 rules out some top contenders like former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and ex Lagos State Governor, Asiwsju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“We will not pitch tent behind any old politician in 2023,” he said.

Shettima stressed that although it is too early to pitch tents, AYCF will only back those who are committed to good governance.
