2023 Presidency: “Emergence of Chairman from North Central will not Impede my Emergence” – Gov. Bello

APC Party Chairman From North Central Zone

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has emphasised that the emergence of Senator Abdullahi Adamu from the North Central geo-political zone of the country as Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) would not impede his decision to contest and emerge as the Presidential flag bearer of the Party. He noted that party administration is different from governance.

APC Will Over 41 Million Votes

The Governor also confidently boasted that the APC will poll over 41million votes in the 2023 general elections if a generally accepted candidate should emerge at the party’s primary.

APC Will Not Zone Anybody Out

He stressed that the APC as a party, as currently constituted, would not zone anyone out of the Presidential race.

Channels TV Interview

Governor Bello said this during an interview with the Sunrise Daily crew on Channels Television on Monday.

The Country Needs Competent, Committed, Young and Vibrant Leader

According to him, the type of leader the nation requires at this time is a competent, committed, young and vibrant individual, who will turn the tides of the nation, irrespective of his or her region, build bridges across ethnic, religious lines, while ensuring the inclusion of youths, women and people with disability in governance.

Choice of the Party

While answering questions on the recently concluded convention of the ruling party, the Governor noted that the emergence of Senator Abdullahi Adamu was the choice of the party.

Experienced Party Leader

He said the party went for an experienced party leader to manage its affairs, noting that the period it took to organise the convention was worth the wait.

NWC Has Great Experience

“The new party leader and the National Working Committee have great experience to lead the party into a strong and cohesive entity. The option of consensus in selecting the majority of the party leaders was clearly in line with legal standing although positions where there was no agreed consensus, contestants went through the polls,” the Kogi Governor said.

Democratic Process for Primaries

He assured that in the forthcoming primaries, the party would go through a democratic process that would be accepted generally by all stakeholders, adding that he was not afraid of any mode chosen by the party.

Women’s Inclusion

Governor Bello, while fielding questions on women’s inclusion in governance, revealed that he would not require legislative backing to include women in government, stressing that Kogi State, under his leadership, had performed tremendously well.

Women’s Support

“This is why women across the nation have been calling on me to run for President, considering the robust track record of giving women high-level inclusion in my administration,” he noted.
