Kogi state Governor Yahaya Bello has contended that the rotational presidency is not in the constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Guardian reports that the governor said this yesterday in Kaduna when northern youths launched a presidential campaign movement for him, Bello said that Nigerian youths would decide his fate in the presidential race.
Nexus News learned that Bello was responding to the agitations by his southern colleagues for power to return to the South.
Inauguration of Yahaya Bello Network (YBN) comes just 72 hours after the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) announced that the region would maintain 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.”
The aide said 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.”
