2023 Presidency: I don’t believe in zoning – Bala Mohammed

Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has said he does not believe in zoning ahead of the 2023 presidential elections but rather believes that the focus should simply be to find a leader who is capable of leading Nigeria.

Governor Bala stated this during an interview on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics.

This comes only days after the Northern Elders Forum chose him and former Senate President Bukola Saraki as the People’s Democratic Party’s consensus candidates on Friday.

He noted that he and Saraki have been tasked with deciding who will represent the region as a candidate.

While claiming to have the skills and experience to govern Nigeria, Bala stated that he will only step down for Saraki if he is sure that he will do a better job in 2023.

When asked if he would step down for former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, who is considered to be one of the political heavy-weights vying for the top position, he said: “why can’t Atiku step down for me”.

In his words, “I stand by my commitment not to contest against Jonathan.”
