A Pro APC group under the aegis of Arewa Youth Alliance for 2023 under its national Coordinator Hon. Bello Lawan Bello in a press briefing in FCT has commended President Muhammad Buhari for accepting the Progressive  Northern Governors Forum decision for honouring the gentleman’s agreement of zoning the presidency to the south after president Muhammad Buhari’s tenure despite having their colleagues and some notable northerners in the race.

Recall that the APC opted to not consider zoning the presidency to any part of the country throwing to all aspirants regardless of zone, the governors deserve commendation for having the courage to put patriotism and nationalism above sentiments as leaders and stakeholders in APC.

“It is only logical and in the highest interest and the unity of this great nation that after 8 years of a northern candidacy, power shifts to the south. This will not only give a sense of belonging to everyone but will go as far as improving the coexistence among the diverse population of the Nation” Bello Added

He further appeals to the APC NWC the path against imposing a consensus candidate, insisting that only a fair level playing ground will take the party to the promised land.

“Anything short of a free and fair primary election will be catastrophic to the survival of the party” which we at Arewa Youth Alliance will not be happy with such a disastrous decision of giving hope to the opposition by going to the 2023 general election with a divided and aggrieved house facing the PDP candidate.

He also called on delegates to do what is expected of them by all party members by ensuring only a credible and sellable candidate emerges victorious as we wish all aspirants the best of luck and accept with good faith the outcome of the convention, we wish all a hitch-free and fair convention.
