Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has lashed out at Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State over his comments on rotational presidency.
Recently, the Governor said that rotational presidency is “unconstitutional.”
According to him, Nigerians should be allowed to make their choices for the best candidate to emerge.
Reacting to the development, Ohanaeze in a statement on Monday, signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia blasted the Governor
The group said that he is “embarking on a political adventure that lacks both conscience and principle.”
Ohanaeze adddd that “Governor Bello was still a student, studying accountancy at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria when an agreement was reached between the North and the South with respect to Rotational Presidency.
“It was on this basis that the Southern Governors resolved in the Lagos meeting that the South should produce the next President of Nigeria after President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We therefore, advise Bello that it would serve his interest better if he supported the resolution by his southern colleagues; more so as “he is still young,” the statement said.
It urged Bello to embrace the ethical functional relationship between the morality of an agreement and the legality of the constitution.
