The Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has said Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State was a student at The Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, when the North and South agreed on the rotational presidency in 1998.
Ohanaeze said statesmen, including Dr. Chuba Okadigbo, Alhaji Abubakar Rimi, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, Chief Solomon Lar, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, among others, were at the meeting when the agreement was reached.
Governor Bello, who has not hidden his presidential ambition, had earlier declared that rotational presidency was unconstitutional.
He said this at the maiden Annual Governor Yahaya Bello, GYB, seminar for the media, held in Abuja last Friday.
Reacting on Monday in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, Ohanaeze said Bello was still young and, therefore, should follow the resolution of the southern governors who decided that the next President should come from the South.
