- Zulum said it is time for a power shift from the North to Southern Nigeria in the next administration
- The governor stated clearly that every part of Nigeria should be given a sense of belonging
Ahead of the country's next general election, Borno state governor, Babagana Zulum has given his voice for a president from the south in 2023.
The Nation reports that Zulum made the disclosure on Thursday, March 25, while delivering a lecture at a book launch by the former Director-General of NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside.
According to him, the time has come for Nigeria to do the right thing. While insisting that power must shift to the south in 2023, the governor argued every part of the country should be given a sense of belonging.
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.
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.
Gowon said this will give rooms for Nigeria to experience peace and development. The elder statesman made this known during the celebration of the 100 years anniversary of the Barewa Old Boys Association (BOBA) in Zaria, Kaduna state.
