Following the agitations by some geo-political zones to produce the next president of Nigeria, the governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has revealed the qualities of who would become President Muhammadu Buhari's successor.
TheCable reports that the governor said the All Progressives Congress (APC) would produce a president in 2023 that would unify the country.
Legit.ng gathered that while speaking on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, on Thursday, November 20, Bello said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s ambition to take back power is a “lofty dream” and ”castles in the air.”
The governor said the majority of Nigerians would accept the APC’s candidate in 2023.
“One thing I can assure Nigerians is that APC will produce a president that is going to be the unifier – that is going to be fair and just.
“The majority of Nigerians irrespective of religion, ethnicity or where they come from will accept 100 percent in 2023.”
The governor said Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi should be awarded politician of the year for defecting to the APC.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a report claimed that three governors on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were having defection talks with the APC.
It was reported that a PDP source was reported to have told the newspaper that the party has not yet ascertained why the governors are considering defecting to the APC.
In another report, the president of Nigeria Presidential Project (NNP), Walter Oji, disclosed that about 46 professors across ethnic groups in Nigeria are working towards the actualisation of the Igbo presidency in 2023.
Oji made this disclosure during the inauguration of NPP in Akwa, the Anambra state capital on Monday, November 9.
He said four former heads of state and other prominent Nigerians are already joining the advocacy for the southeast to produce the next president.
