State legislators in the North Central states have passed a vote of confidence in the Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and also endorsed Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello for President in the forthcoming 2023 elections.
The decisions were reached after a one-day meeting of the APC States Legislatures from the six states of the North Central Zone, held on Thursday in Abuja.
The convener, immediate past Speaker of the Niger State House of Assembly, Ahmed Marafa said the meeting was held to discuss the political future of the zone with respect to what he called the power equation in the country.
While encouraging Governor Bello to continue to pursue his ambition, the state legislators noted that “he remained the only person that the zone could rally round for it to be counted in the power equation of the country.”
The lawmakers stressed that the Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee needed the support and cooperation of all party faithful to reposition the party for better performance and victory in the 2023 elections.
