State legislators in all the North Central states have passed a vote of confidence in the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The legislators also endorsed Governor Yahaya Bello for President, being the only person that has shown interest in the position from the zone.
This was made this known at the end of a one-day extraordinary meeting
in Abuja on Thursday.
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 polls.
According to the convener, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Marafa, the extraordinary meeting was convened to discuss the political future of the zone with respect to what he called the power equation in the country.
He further urged members from the six states of the zone to see reason why all well meaning men and women must come together and agitate for a fair share for the zone.
Also speaking, the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Hon. Matthew Kolawole, commended the Lawmakers for their quick response to the meeting, noting that it would go a long way to show their genuine efforts to look after the welfare of their people.
However, in a communique passed at the end of their one-day roundtable, the legislators appealed to all party faithful at all levels to give their support and cooperation to Buni to complete the good works that had led many people into the party since he assumed office.
The lawmakers thereafter 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 polls.
