2023 Presidency: S/West APC Commends Yakassai For Backing South

By Roundoffnews

The All Progressives Congress APC, South West has again lauded another northern leader Alhaji Tanko Yakassai for backing the south to produce the next president of Nigeria.

Yakassai who is a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Arewa Consultative Forum, said “The Principle of Zoning and Rotation are very important in Nigerian Politics, particularly as long as the country is operating the presidential system of Government. This is particularly because the concentration of power lies with the Federal Government and the Presidency. It would be inappropriate to attempt to run the Presidency by a single region for more than eight years

“So, in my opinion,it is incumbent on the APC to sponsor the next Presidential candidate from the South”

In a statement, the APC, South West Zonal Publicity Secretary Rt.Hon. Asiwaju Karounwi Oladapo said the commendation was necessary because several other northern leaders who made similar statement were complemented.

The statement reads “Following the humble request of the South West APC Zonal Caucus, through the office of the Zonal Publicity Secretary, APC, South West, to the Northern leaders and elites to speak up in favour of the shifting of the Presidential Power to the South in 2023, I am happy to read the advocacy of another Political influencer, credible and vocal personality from the North, an elder statesman, First Republic Politician and a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Arewa Consultative Forum, Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, in Saturday Tribune, 22 August, 2020, page 3.

Alhaji Tanko Yakassai has the commendation of the South West APC Zonal Caucus, like we did to the earlier callers ; El-Rufai, Yari and Ndume.
