The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has issued a stern warning to the ruling All Progressives congress on the 2023 presidency.
According to the governor, poor handling of the zoning issue may cost the party its chance to retain the presidency in 2023.
Akeredolu, who advised the party to declare its position on the matter, said seeding the slot to the Southern part of the country will give it a better chance.
He also chided some of the party leaders who have refused to announce the slot to the South adding that “it will be disingenuous for anyone to argue against rotation at this period.”
“We must do nothing which is capable of tilting the delicate balance against the established arrangement which guarantees peace and promotes trust.”
He also maintained that the party leadership had adopted the principle of rotational representation during the just-concluded convention.
“This is the time the leaders of the party must make a categorical statement, devoid of equivocation, on the pattern of succession. It is the turn of the Southern part of the country to produce the next President,” he added.
