Prominent APC senator Adamu clears air on zoning system
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a former governor of Nasarawa state, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, told those agitating for the power shift to the southern part of the country in 2023 to bury their thought.
It was reported that Adamu who is the senator representing Nasarawa West senatorial district in the National Assembly described the zoning as unconstitutional.
According to him, since the idea of zoning is not in the nation’s constitution, every eligible Nigerian was free to contest the 2023 presidential election regardless of his or her state of origin.
Adamu noted that the party should go by merit, adding that every party must find a way of selling itself in a manner that would garner the kind of votes that would win the election.
