Rotimi Akeredolu,the Governor of Ondo state, has warned All Progressives Congress the leaders, APC to avoid plans endorse a northern candidate in the upcoming 2023 Presidential Elections.
In statement made available to the press, warned that it would lead to serious problems adding that the party should take a stand and declare that the next president of the country must come from Southern Nigeria.
“This must be done without delay. The principle of Federal Character is enshrined in the 1999 Constitution, as amended. It will be disingenuous for anyone to argue against rotation at this period.”
“We must not keep our party men and women guessing on the position of the leadership of the party. This is the time to weigh in and take control of the process.”
“No statement must suggest, even remotely, that the party harbours certain sentiments which may predispose it to consider throwing the contest open. This is certainly not the time for equivocation. EQUITY DICTATES THAT WE TAKE A STAND.”
