2023: Zoning Can’t Stop Gov Bello’s Quest To Birth A New Nigeria – Group

 
Fri Mar 11th, 2022 - Kogi
 

A political support group, ‘Got Your Back Nigeria‘, has said that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State also known as GYB, will gun for the 2023 presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The national co-ordinator of the group, Prof. Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr, said Governor Bello will pursue his ambition to re-fix, reset and rework Nigeria irrespective of zoning.

Nwaokobia Jnr said Bello will continue to give leadership to the party and indeed the Nigerian people, and he will together with the millions of Nigerian youths push the Youth O’clock fervency, and the gender debate challenge for the soul of Nigeria, adding that there is no stopping what he called the GYB Movement.

The statement reads in part: “Not a few Nigerians have troubled me with their concern about the purported zoning of the Presidential Ticket of the All Progressive Congress APC to the South, some have argued that since the slot of the National Chairman of the APC have been zoned allegedly to the North Central, ‘your man should forget the Presidency, because the chairman of the party and the president of the country cannot come from the same zone’.

“The last time I checked, the only thing a party can legitimately do is to zone party offices, not elective positions provided for by the Constitution. The PDP was careful enough to say that all they have zoned are party offices.

“There are those in the country and in my dear party, the APC, who are desperate to become President in 2023 and whose gambit is to shut the door against some candidates, zoning is their linchpin, but it won’t work. We are poised not only to debate them, but to show the resolve of Nigerians to break out of the banal margins of our politics to new highs where passion, competency, capacity, commitment, candour and composure are the only permissible minimums for governmental power cum political contestations.

“Parties are free if they like to zone Party Offices, but to zone out the ambition of persons otherwise protected and prescribed for, by and in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is a no no. The APC must beware the Ides of March”.

“Governor Yahaya Bello, the essential GYB will run for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), he will pursue his ambition to re-fix, reset and rework Nigeria. He will continue to give leadership to the Party and indeed the Nigerian people, and he will together with the millions of Nigerian Youths pushing the Youth O’clock fervency, and the gender debate challenge for the soul of our Dear Country. There is no stopping the GYB Movement.
