Leaders from North-Central region claim marginalization, urge Tinubu on appointments

Leaders from the North-Central region are raising concerns about what they perceive as severe neglect in federal appointments, despite their significant contributions to the All Progressives Congress (APC) victory in the recent presidential poll.

Expressing their discontent, former Acting Governor of Kogi State and ex-Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Honourable Abdullahi Bello, emphasized the region’s pivotal role in securing the APC’s victory during the primaries and the general election. Bello, representing the North-Central Parliamentarians Directorate of the APC-PCC 2023, echoed the sentiments conveyed by key stakeholders of the North-Central Development Initiative.

The stakeholders highlighted the North-Central zone’s substantial voter turnout, ranking third after the North-East and South-West regions in delivering votes to the APC during the presidential poll.

Speaking out on Sunday, Bello underscored the challenges President Tinubu faced upon assuming office, emphasizing the country’s dire situation across economic and political fronts. He acknowledged signs of progress under Tinubu’s administration, commending the combined executive and legislative experience of President Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima.

However, Bello appealed to President Tinubu to address the alleged neglect of the North-Central zone in strategic appointments. He expressed disappointment over the lack of recognition for individuals who supported Tinubu during the APC presidential primary, despite their dedicated efforts.

Bello conveyed hope that President Tinubu, known for his integrity, would soon rectify the situation and bring about positive changes across the nation.
