Former Governor of Zamfara State, Ahmed Yerima has stated that he will step down his presidential ambition in 2023 if the ruling All Progressives Congress zones the ticket to the South.
Yerima stated this while addressing reporters in Abuja on Sunday.
The former lawmaker stated that he had not seen the reason for backing out of the race, not even with the call by the southern governors at their last summit in Lagos.
“Yes, I want to confirm to you that by the special grace of God, if I’m alive, I, Senator Ahmed Sani, intend to vie for presidential office.
“But, you see, if tomorrow my party (APC) comes up and says we have zoned the Presidency to the South, I, Yerima, will follow it. I will then know that it is a decision legally and lawful that is binding on all members of the party.”
