A former governor of Zamfara State, Senator Ahmed Sani Yeriman Bakura, has said his 2023 presidential bid can’t be thwarted on account of zoning, stressing that zoning is alien to the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).  

 Yerima, who is seeking the ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest the 2023 presidential election, stated this in an interview with newsmen shortly after the 25th anniversary and graduation ceremony of Nurul Tilawah International School in Zaria, at the weekend.

Controversy is raging in the APC over which zone produces Buhari’s successor at the expiration of his tenure in 2023. Yerima, is from the same North-West zone as Buhari.

He said, “Democracy is all about people’s choice, irrespective of where one comes from, hence I cannot be deterred by such agitation.”


South-East leaders endorse Ugwuanyi 

Scores of political leaders in the South-East geopolitical zone have begun a movement pushing for the candidature of Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi as a presidential candidate in 2023 saying that he is the best man for the job.

A former governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, disclosed this after consultations with stakeholders and political leaders including the Ebeano family.

He said justice, fairness and equity demand that the Nigerian state allows the South East to produce the next president.

“Our leaders, including the Ebeano political family in Nigeria and in diaspora, have consulted widely and seriously believe in the actualisation of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and president in 2023,” Nnamani said.


Vote who can deliver good governance – Adebayo

Meanwhile, Nigerians have been urged to vote for a presidential candidate that would deliver good governance and provide affordable housing for them.

 In a chat with newsmen in Abuja, the Executive Director of the Housing Development Advocacy Organization in Nigeria (HDAN), Festus Adebayo, said the economic importance is so necessary that citizens must take advantage as part of the parameters for candidates vying for elective positions in the 2023 elections.

 “As 2023 approaches, citizens should vote for leaders who have vision and the passion to improve the wellbeing of the common man, especially leaders who will provide basic necessities like housing even for the homeless man on the streets,” he said.
