The All Progressives Congress, APC nationwide state congresses earlier scheduled to hold in the first week of October has been postponed.

The ruling party in a terse statement released on Wednesday by the National Secretary of the Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, declared that the congress is now rescheduled for Saturday, 16th October, 2021.

The statement noted that an updated timetable/schedule of activities and guidelines for the conduct of the state congresses will be made public in due course.

Recall that APC had announced earlier that the party State Congresses across the country will hold on October 2, 2021.

Meanwhile, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has described calls by the southern governors’ forum for President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor to come from their region as democracy.

He stated this while speaking at the inauguration of a presidential campaign movement – Movement called Yahaya Bello Network Group (YBN) – for him by some northern youth in Kaduna.

However, Bello, who was represented at the event by his Special Adviser on Youth and Student Affairs, Ahmed Jubril, said rotational presidency is not in the constitution of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Yahaya Bello, “Governor Yahaya Bello is doing the right thing because in other countries we have seen where the youths have taken over. It is only a plus for us as youths to be calling on Governor Bello to come and be the number one person in Nigeria.”

“The agitation is part of democracy, everybody has the right to call for what they want and it is their opinion. But we know that as a party, in the APC, we don’t have any fixed law saying anybody is entitled to power in any area for a period of time. Let the youth of Nigeria decide who they want,” he said

“If they have seen the youth in Governor Bello, if they have seen a leader and a unifier of the country in him, then he shall be President by the grace of God, because man proposes, but God has the final say.

“When elected President of Nigeria, Governor Bello will be doing a lot differently, because he has been doing that. The nation is just getting back from Coronavirus and economic recession and you can see Kogi was rated fastest growing economy in Nigeria within that period of time.

“This means Governor Bello is a man who sees beyond ordinary and taken advantage of circumstances. I believe this is the kind of person we want in Nigeria now, someone with passion for the country someone who is a unifier and has fought against insecurity. We need a leader with commitment to protecting lives and properties of Nigerians,” he said.

Portable came into the limelight towards the end of 2021 on the back of his hit track ‘Zazoo Zeh’ featuring Olamide, the rapper, and Poco Lee, the dancer.

He was recently nominated for the ‘Rookie of the Year’ and ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ categories at the 2022 edition of the Headies.
