Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has come out to say that zoning presidency is not constitutional.

He recently revealed this during the maiden Annual Governor Yahaya Bello, GYB, seminar for the media, held in Transcorp Hotel, Abuja.

According to him, equity must always be applied to processes like this because democracy is all about free will and nothing else.

Yahaya added that zoning is not recognized in the 1999 constitution for a reason, so everyone should respect that.

His words, “On zoning presidency to a particular zone in 2023, we must apply equity in the process. Democracy bus all about free will. Let no political party limit the choice to a particular zone.”

“Zoning is not recognized in the 1999 Constitution it’s absolutely, unconstitutional.”

“If we must continue with the sentiment of rotational Presidency, it’s okay, but let’s do it right in the interest of equity, fairness and justice.”

“Let’s not take it from 1999, let’s go back to 1960. From the Independence, all the leaders we had, you will discover that all other geo-political zones as it exists today at one time had position of leadership.”

“In the 2023 Presidential elections let the best candidate emerge who will unify and solve the problems of this country we are facing today, who will build on the legacies of Mr President. It’s high time the youth take over the affairs of this country.”

“I have always lead from the front based on equity, fairness and justice. To me as a leader, I will say let us be sincere.”

“Younger generations are taking charge across the world. It is high time we look for a credible candidate based on merit and not by zoning.”

“As the clarion call goes forth for 2023, one can easily discern by events such as this that the Organised Media in Nigeria is already working hard to crack the complex equation of who the next Nigerian President should be.”

“All I can say is that in factoring your 2023 equations, please allow yourselves to be guided by the National interest to input the following factors: Youthfulness, courage, security, diversity, clear records in successfully managing diversity which is where most post-Independence leaders of Nigeria have failed.”
