South should produce next President- Governor El-Rufai

Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i has revealed that the next President should come from the South. This revelation appear barely a week after the issue of zoning of presidency comes up.

He also count it as rumour that he was nursing presidential ambition. He said that presidential ambition is not in his plan for now.

In his words “The southern part of the country is supposed to produce the president come 2023.

“I don’t support a northerner to vie for the seat after President Muhammadu Buhari, based on Nigeria’s political arrangement.

“After President Muhammadu Buhari would have spent eight years by 2023, the right is that, no northerner should contest, the south two should have its shot for eight years.

“I am taking this position not because I agree that that is how leadership should be selected, but because that is how Nigeria politics is for now.

“I believe there is no developed country across the world that considers leadership based on where someone comes from.

“However, in Nigerian politics, there is an arrangement that we all believe on rotational leadership. We are aware of that, anyone who denies that is wrong.”.
