In another report by P.M News, the Borno governor who is advocating power shift from the north urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to keep to previous agreements made.

He noted that the ruling party agreed to shift power to the southern part of the country in the next administration.

Similarly, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state on Saturday, March 20, called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to zone its 2023 presidential ticket to the south-south.

The Edo governor made this call in Benin, the state capital, at a reception ceremony to honour Chief Dan Orbih, PDP's new national chairman for the region.

Obaseki said it will amount to equity and fairness if the south-south is allowed to produce Nigeria's next president.

In a related development, Nigeria's former military head of state, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd), has canvassed for the zoning and rotation of the presidency among the six geopolitical zones of the country.
