Rotational presidency not in APC constitution, says Bello
Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has argued that the rotational presidency is not in the constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking, yesterday, in Kaduna when northern youths inaugurated a presidential campaign movement for him, the governor said that Nigerian youths would decide his fate in the presidential race.
Bello was reacting to the agitations by his southern colleagues for power to return to the South.
Inauguration of Yahaya Bello Network (YBN) was coming barely 72 hours after the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) declared that the region would retain power beyond 2023, as it has the voting population to win the presidential election.
Represented at the event by his Special Adviser on Youth and Student Affairs, Ahmed Jubril, the governor said: “It is a good development that Nigerian youths are now coming on board to identify with a youth like them for the exalted position of Nigerian President.”
According to the aide, Bello is doing the right thing because, in other countries, we have seen where the youths have taken over. “It is only a plus for us as youths to be calling on Governor Bello to come and be the number one person in Nigeria.”
