Nwifuru revealed the preparedness of Ebonyi lawmakers to support the kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello’s Presidential ambition, only if the national leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, approves him as the North Central candidate.

Nwifuru noted that it was the turn of the North Central zone and the South-east to produce the President of Nigeria, but that for the sake of equity and justice, that South-East zone deserved the presidential position.

He appealed to the kogi lawmakers to as well support David Umahi, Ebonyi State Governor to rule the country in 2023 saying “I appeal that if the Party zones the presidential position to the South-East zone, the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi should be supported to rule the country, while Governor Bello can still be supported to be his Vice President.”

Earlier, in a remark, Rt Hon. Kolawole maintained that Governor Bello is the best candidate to rule Nigeria come 2023, adding that he has performed excellently in office as governor.

He noted that Bello had won several awards, especially on security, which according to him, is an indication that he could handle the security challenges facing the country.

He explained that the North-Central and South-East regions deserved consideration for the positions of President and Vice President, especially in the 2023 general election, adding that the two geographical zones had not been given any chance to occupy the nation’s Presidency.

The Kogi speaker, however, applauded the defection of Governor Umahi to the ruling All Progressives Congress, saying it was in the best interest of the region.

He stressed that the support of Ebonyi to the Bello’s 2023 project, would automatically make Governor Umahi become the Vice President.

“Your people will benefit more. We in Kogi House have robust relationships with the executive arm. For best functionality, you need cordiality with other arms. Our Governor is the youngest and doing well, including security.

“We have passed a vote of confidence on him. We went further to look at the geopolitical zone in the country. We passed the resolution that our governor should be the first to contest for the position of president in 2023. We feel he can handle this country. Let there be fair sharing in the position.

“North Central should produce the president in 2023. It’s a notification that our governor will be contesting for the president in 2023. We urge the APC members in the State that the North Central and South East should produce the president and vice president in 2023,” Kolawole stated.
