Electoral Act: Reps Deny Removing Electronic Transmission Of Result
Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has again joined calls for power to shift to the southern part of the country, backing the Southern Governors’ Forum resolution on the zoning of the presidential seat.
“I have said it times without number that I Profess Babagana Zulu, I am of the view that the presidency should go to the south in the year 2023 because the unity of our country is very important,” the governor said during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Wednesday.
“Secondly, inclusivity is very important. Thirdly, I am in the APC. Six or seven years ago, APC had zoned the presidency to northern Nigeria based on the agreement that in the year 2023, the presidency would go to the south.”
The governor admitted that the southern leaders have the right to call for power shift to the region but faulted those insisting that the southern region of the country must produce the next Nigerian leader, calling for dialogue.
“But again, this is politics. We are supposed to meet and discuss this issue among ourselves, among the political class,” he explained, as he urged restrain so as not to overheat the polity.
“This statement that people are saying that the president must go to the south, I want them to remove the word must.”
