2023: Akeredolu Sends Strong Warning To APC Over Zoning

Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo State, has issued a stern message to the All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership, requesting that the party announce its position on zoning its presidential candidate for 2023.

According to Akeredolu, the country’s next president must come from the south.

This, according to the governor, is why the party’s national leadership post was assigned to the north.

He slammed the APC leadership’s failure to tell hopefuls that the presidential election in 2023 would be held in the south, saying that “it will be hypocritical for anyone to argue against rotation at this time.”

While adhering to the spirit and letter of the laws governing elections and political succession, Akeredolu argued that political expediency dictates that “we must do nothing that is capable of tilting the delicate balance against the established arrangement that guarantees peace and promotes trust.”

During the recently finished convention, the party’s leadership embraced the idea of rotational representation, according to the governor.

“This is the moment for the party’s leaders to make a definitive declaration, devoid of equivocation, on the pattern of succession,” Akeredolu said in a statement on Tuesday.

The APC, according to Akeredolu, should restrict disagreements to an area for possible micromanagement, citing the need to avoid self-inflicted crises before the general elections.

Without mincing words, the Ondo helmsman posited that “It is the turn of the Southern part of the country to produce the next President.”

He stressed that the APC leadership should not have any difficulty in making that pronouncement, just the same way it fixed various fees for the purchase of forms.

He added the statement on the zoning of the presidential ticket to the south must be done without delay, maintaining that the principle of Federal Character is enshrined in the 1999 Constitution.
