A member of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Mr. Obedient Emoto, on Sunday condemned persons and parties shopping for presidential candidates for 2015, including the newly formed All Progressive Congress (APC).
Emoto asked such persons and parties not to dissipate their energy in their quest to replace President Goodluck Jonathan. He said Aso Rock seat would not be vacant in 2015.
Also, Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, has said there is no vacancy in Osun Government House in 2014.
Emoto, representing Ogbia Constituency II in the state Assemby and a kinsman of Jonathan, advised the leadership of the Nigerian Governors' Forum to stop using the platform to pursue the 2015 agenda.
He enjoined the governors to stop engaging in acts capable of causing disaffection and anarchy in the country but to channel their energy and experience in developing their poverty-stricken states.
Aregbesola also spoke on Osun governorship seat in Ede, on Saturday during a seven-kilometre walk, tagged. 'Walk to Live', organised by his administration.
He said, "Some people are boasting that they want to take over the administration of Osun State. It is impossible. There’s no vacancy in Osun Government House in 2014.
"Interlopers cannot be allowed to govern Osun. We know their antecedents; what did they do during their tenure? The people of Osun deserve progress, peace and development, which we symbolise."
