The Deputy Speaker of KOGI State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Ahmed Mohammed has called on the governors and stakeholders of North Central States to begin consultations and negotiations with politicians and opinion leaders in the country with a view to projecting the Governor of Kogi State, Alh. Yahaya Bello as the president from North Central extraction come 2023.
According to the Deputy Speaker, the North Central have sacrificed and contributed immensely for the unity, peace and stability in the democratic governance of the country. The zone is blessed with individuals and personalities from every sphere of human endeavour with needed capacity and experience to lead the country to greatness.
In the spirit of equity and justice, it will only be fair for political parties to give priority to the North Central presidency in their zoning arrangement towards 2023 and Yahaya Bello has all it takes to lead the country.
“Gov. Bello has done well in the area of Security, infrastructural development, education, health, youth empowerment and agriculture and he is the first Governor in Nigeria to involve women fully in politics. His emergence as president will be a new dawn for the Youths, women and people of Nigeria”
He said the North Central and South East remain the only zones that have not been given opportunity to serve in that capacity, noting that the All Progressive Congress (APC) should give a consideration; because to whom much is giving, much is expected.”
He called on the people of the state and members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to give the governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello total support so that he can become the next president of the country come 2023.
