2023: "You Were Still In School When Rotational Presidency Was Agreed" - Ohaneze Ndigbo Blasts Yahaya Bello

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has been blasted by Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, over his statements on rotational presidency.

Recall that the Kogi State governor had described the idea for rotational presidency as “unconstitutional.”

He further stated that Nigerians should be given the opportunity to vote for the best candidate for the top job.

Reacting to Bello's statement, Ohanaeze Ndigbo in a statement on Monday, signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia slammed the Governor saying that he is “embarking on a political adventure that lacks both conscience and principle.”

All the pains and afflictions that men suffer as a result of vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, enslavement, and war stem from their disregarding or ignoring the inner silent voice of conscience, according to Ohanaeze.

“Governor Bello was still a student, studying accountancy at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria when an agreement was reached between the North and the South with respect to Rotational Presidency.

“It was on this basis that the Southern Governors resolved in the Lagos meeting that the South should produce the next President of Nigeria after President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We, therefore, advise Bello that it would serve his interest better if he supported the resolution by his southern colleagues; more so as “he is still young,” the statement said.

The group also urged The Kogi State governor to accept the ethical functional relationship between the morality of an agreement and the validity of the constitution.
