Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has said that the idea of zoning ahead of the 2023 general election is unconstitutional.
The governor who has expressed interest in running in the 2023 presidential election said this at the maiden Annual Governor Yaya Bello, GYB, seminar for the media, held in Transcorp Hotel, Abuja.
The Kogi governor stressed that Nigeria needs a leader at the present, who will unify the diverse people in the country and build on the existing legacies.
Earlier on Monday, the Southern Governors’ Forum, comprising of 17 governors in the zone, met in Lagos, and after the meeting, they unanimously agreed that the next president of the country must be from the southern part of the country.
The agreement by the Southern governors automatically disqualifies Yahaya Bello from running for the next presidential election.
The Southern governors, also, reiterated the call for true federalism and devolution of powers to states after their Monday meeting.
