Sani Yerima, former Governor of Zamfara State, has said that he would contest for the post of presidency in 2023.
The former Governor known for the implementation of Sharia made this intimation during a press conference in Abuja.
Acccording to him, the time is ripe for him to contest.
He also said that there is no zoning in the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He said: “You may recall that in 2006, I declared my interest to contest for presidency after having served Zamfara State for a period of eight years.
“However, I decided to withdraw for the current President at that time and since then I went to Senate for three terms. Now that Mr. President is completing his second term, I decided to try again to see what God will have for me having voluntarily decided not to go to the Senate again.”
On zoning, he said: “You see, I don’t think there is anything like agreement. You can ask Mr President, he led the group, Asiwaju was there, I was part of it, there was no meeting. Agreement can’t be verbal, it has to be written
