2023: the rise of Adamu will not impede my presidential ambition – Kogi gov

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has said that All Progressives Congress (APC)as currently constituted, it would not exclude anyone from the presidential race. Bello said this in a statement from his chief press secretary, Onogwu Mohammed, in Abuja on Monday. The governor also stated that the party would get more than 41 million votes in the 2023 general election if a generally acceptable candidate emerged in the party’s primary. He stressed that the emergence of Abdullahi Adamu from the north-central geopolitical zone of the country would not prevent his decision to compete for the party’s presidential ticket. Bello hails from the Midwest like Adamu, who was elected APC national chairman at the party’s convention on Saturday.

The southern zones are Southwest, Southeast, and South-South. But Bello pointed out that the administration of the party was different from the government. “The kind of leader the nation requires right now is a competent, committed, young, vibrant individual who will change the course of the nation. “Regardless of your region, build bridges across ethnic and religious lines while ensuring the inclusion of youth, women and people with disabilities in government,” said Mr. Bello. Speaking about the ruling party’s recently concluded convention, Mr. Bello noted that Mr. Adamu’s appearance was the party’s choice. He said the party chose an experienced party leader to run its affairs, noting that the time it took to organize the convention was worth the wait. “The new party leader and the National Work Committee have great experience in making the party a strong and cohesive entity. “The consensus option in the selection of the majority of the party leaders was clearly in line with active legitimation, although positions where there was no agreed consensus, the contenders went through the polls,” he added. Bello assured that in the upcoming primaries, the party would go through a democratic process that would be generally accepted by all stakeholders, adding that he did not fear any way chosen by the party. On the inclusion of women in government, Bello revealed that he would not need legislative support to include women in government, noting that Kogi, under his leadership, had performed tremendously well. “That is why women across the country have asked me to run for president, considering my administration’s strong track record of providing high-level inclusion for women,” Bello said.
