Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has denied reports that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) had a zoning arrangement ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

Yahaya Bello made this known while speaking to newsmen in Abuja at the weekend.

He said anyone from any zone was free to contest for presidency in 2023, as there was no zoning arrangement in the APC.

According to him, “There is nothing like zoning in our party. In 2015, there was no zoning; many aspirants, including former governor Rochas Okorocha, contested.

“In 2019, there was no zoning; people in APC were not courageous enough to contest with President Muhammadu Buhari.”

Speaking on his interest in the 2023 presidency, Bello said: “If it’s the will of God for me to become president in this country at the right time, I will be.”

He reiterated that he would defeat any candidate he decides to contest against for the 2023 presidency with a record-breaking vote.

“I will record a vote that has never been recorded in Nigeria by the grace of God. But that’s not the issue right now; the issue is there must be Nigeria before we talk of 2023,” he added.


  1. Forget this joker. He should first clear bushes in his state. Kogi is a bush state. No house . M sure he is a bush man.

  2. These(intentional) stupid and idiot Yahaya Bello think the presidency is for his kind. In fact clueless and educationless Buhari is far better than Yahaya Bello.

  3. Southerners are not even interested in your 2023 shit. Separation is trending . Ok? To hell with your presidency. You are can rule yourself in 2023 . You rat.

    • Which Southerners? There is nothing like Southerners, mention your Igbo states and stop hiding under the umbrella of Southerners, when Jonathan was looting Nigeria with you Igbos, we never heard you mention Southerners, now that the pot of soup is no longer within your reach, we now have South. When you were stealing Nigeria without thinking of roads in South East, did the Igbos think of Yorubas?

      Shameless irresponsible people
