APC youths: North-Central should produce Buhari’s successor in 2023


Some All Progressives Congress (APC) youths drawn from the 16 local government areas of Kwara State have called on the party to zone the 2023 presidential seat to the North Central geopolitical zone.
Spokesperson of the group, Mr Ajibola Abdulkareem, made the call in Offa after an emergency meeting of APC Youth Ambassadors on Thursday.
He explained that zoning the presidential slot to North Central and ensuring President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor emerges from the zone would promote equality, justice and fairness.
Abdulkareem said the North Central geopolitical zone has been shut out of the presidential seat since the nation got independence in 1960.
He said the injustice against the region was unfair and 2023 was the time to correct it by zoning the Presidency to zone.
“The zone has been the soul and unifying factor of our national existence. There is no justification for the zone to be so shortchanged and neglected that it has not produced a President or Vice President since 1960,” Abdulkareem said.
Similarly, another member of the group, Mr Abiodun Adekeye, said the youth of North Central are resolute and ready to mobilise for the party more than ever, if the presidential slot was conceded to the zone.
He noted that the strongest base of APC was in the North Central and that the people of the zone have demonstrated unequal commitment to the victory of the party and should be given the opportunity.
