Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has confirmed his intention to contest for the 2023 Presidential election and succeed President Buhari.

Bello stated this while speaking with journalists in Abuja, adding that he developed the ambition following calls by Nigerian youths, women, and other groups.

According to him, “I don’t refer to this as my presidential ambition. It is the ambition of the youths, the younger generation, the women, the less-privileged, the deprived and the oppressed in the society.

“These are the people calling me to come and serve, to run and contest for president in 2023 and in order that I don’t run foul of the law, I am waiting for an appropriate time to officially give the nod to that call.”

Bello also said that his ambition holds immense benefit for the less-privileged, the oppressed, and needy in Nigeria adding that it is possible for a politician from northern Nigeria to become the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) after Buhari’s tenure.

He suggested that there is nothing restricting APC members from contesting for the presidency on the platform of the party irrespective of the zone they come from.

This position is however contrary to claims by some high-ranking members of the APC who said there is a zoning arrangement with regards to the presidential ticket between the north and south.
