Nigerians Not United, Suffering Poverty And Insecurity Under Buhari – Yahaya Bello

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has stated that what Nigerians need in 2023 is someone who can unity the security and tackle Insecurity.

The governor called for the jettisoning of zoning, stressing that such is not found in the constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or the 1999 constitution.

Speaking in an interview with Daily Trust published on Sunday, the APC chieftain stated that today there is poverty everywhere and insecurity is almost everywhere.

According to him, if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which has been tagged a failure had practice zoning, then the ruling APC should not follow such part.

He said: “I have gone through our party’s constitution and did not see where zoning of the presidency is stated. I do not know of any party’s constitution where zoning is stated. I have also read the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) and did not see where zoning was mentioned. So we should not import what is not in the constitution.

“If a party like the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which we say did not govern this country properly, practised it and it seemingly did not work, why should we consider it? We are practising democracy, and from what we know, zoning is against its principle. It is purely about number and merit.”

Yahaya Bello urged the ruling party to simply look at who can do the job and pull Nigeria out of the woods –someone who will unite and secure the country.
