The All Progressives Congress (APC) youths across the sixteen local government of Kwara State have called on the national leadership of the party to zone the 2023 presidential seat to the North Central region of the country to guarantee justice, equity and fairness.

Speaking in Ilorin after an emergency meeting of APC Youth Ambassadors, the leader of the youths, Mr Ajibola Abdulkareem said the injustice against the North Central is unfair and the party should use the 2023 election to correct it by zoning the presidency to the North Central.
According to him, the North Central geopolitical zone has been shut out of the presidential seat since Nigeria’s independence in 1960 despite been the soul and unifying factor of our national existence.
He said there is no justification for the zone to be so shortchanged and neglected that it has not produced a president or Vice President since independence adding that yet they “have not gone violent like other zones regarding the county’s leadership
“The leadership of our great party, the APC under the Caretaker Committee should write their names in the book of history by zoning the presidency to the North Central”, he added.
Also speaking, member of the APC youth, Abiodun Adekeye, said the youths of North Central are resolute and ready to mobilise for the party more than ever if the zone is considered.
He noted noted that the strongest base of APC is in the North Central adding that the people of the zone have demonstrated unequal commitment to the victory of the party and should be given the opportunity this time around.
