Ibrahim Shekarau To Southern Governors: Ganging Up Against North Won’t Give You President In 2023

The Senator representing Kano Central, Ibrahim Shekarau, has told Southern governors to stop using threats and gang up against the North in the quest for the 2023 presidency.

The federal lawmaker, who was a former governor of Kano State, noted that the issue of where the next president should emerge is a matter of party affair that should be sorted out by the political parties.

Shekarau said President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor should come from the Southern part of the country to give a sense of belonging.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain spoke on a Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily Programme monitored yesterday in Abuja.

The 17 Southern governors have met twice this year and demanded power shift to the region while the 19 Northern Governors also met last week, opposing such move and noting that the candidate with the highest votes will emerge as President in the next general elections.

He said: “As far as the party I belong is concerned, the APC, my proposal is that now that President Buhari is from the northern part of the country and (after) he has done his eight years, let’s beam the searchlight to the southern part of Nigeria, not because we don’t have competent people in the north…that does not mean you are throwing away the issue of competence, credibility and so on.

“While I agree we should go for the best and therefore throw it open, regardless of which part of the country, but we must also be mindful of the aspect of the sense of belonging. We must be mindful of perception, to give some sense of belonging to every part of Nigeria.

“Where I disagree with the Southern Governors is coming together to gang up to say it must be our turn. I think this is purely a party affair. We must not do this at the point of threat, that it must be me, it must be he, we need to come together. This is more of a political party issue.
