Information reaching Ibom Focus that APC Reject Yahaya Bello As Presidential Candidate In 2023, Give Reasons

Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof Itse Sagay (SAN), has told Kogi State Governor to wait till 2031 to try his luck or aspire for Vice Presidency as the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) does not need youths like Governor Yahaya Bello as its presidential candidate in 2023.

Sagay, who is also a chieftain of the APC, stated this on Sunday in a chat with journalists.

He said advised Bello to aspire to be Vice-President or wait till 2031 when it will be the turn of the North after the South must have used its two terms of eight years.

Sagay said the claim by the governor that Nigeria needs a youth as president does not apply to him as there are abundance of young people in the Southern part of the country.

“I don’t see the point Yahaya Bello is making. We have young people in the South too. So, we don’t need young people like Yahaya Bello to contest under APC in 2023. He should wait for his turn.

“He can wait for eight years for the South to exhaust its turn before he can come out to contest or he should aspire to be vice-president and then look for a strong Southern presidential candidate to run with.

“He should forget the issue of becoming president in 2023. There is no way he can ever be the APC presidential candidate for 2023. It will never happen.

“There is only one thing that I demand from the APC as a matter of rights based on our relationship in Nigeria. That is the fact that the president must come from the South. No northern APC member should contest. They should leave the ticket to Southerners alone.

“He can wait for eight years for the South to exhaust its turn before he can come out to contest or he should aspire to be vice-president and then look for a strong Southern presidential candidate to run with,” he said.

He called on APC to make the 2023 presidential race a matter of rights and prevent any northerner from contesting based on relationship that exists within the party.
