Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has rejected zoning of presidency advocated for by Southern governors
According to him, .a rotational presidency can not solve Nigeria’s problem, saying it was why former President Olusegun Obasanjo could not solve the problems of the Southwest.
He noted that the Nigerian 1999 constitution does not recognise rotational presidency.
Speaking during an interview with newsmen, the governor said Nigerians must be allowed to choose their leaders.
Bello said, “Nigeria of today is a ship that requires the best captain to deliver it to its destination.
“If zoning will resolve our problem when Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo was President, all the problems of the Southwest should have been solved.
“When President Umaru Yar’adua was there, all the problems of the North would have been solved and similarly, all Southern problems would have been solved during the era of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“I will continue to insist that the best candidate who will build on the legacies that President is leaving behind emerge and should the nation go on Rotational Presidency, it should be done fairly with equity.”
