Former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has said the southerners may find it difficult to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Recall that the region that will produce Buhari’s successor have been generating ripples.
The northerners have said the power would remain in the North with many southerners kicking against the move.
However, the two major political parties in the country. APC and PDP are yet to ventilate their decision on the region that will produce the next president.
Speaking over the matter, Sani said the South would find it difficult to produce the next president except if the major parties zone the slot to the South.
Sani, who spoke through his Twitter handle said: “Power will shift to the South only if the candidates of the two main political parties are picked from the South.”
Meanwhile, the leaders of southern regional socio-cultural groups, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Afenifere, and PANDEF, had accused APC of playing hanky-panky with the zoning of the 2023 presidency to the South.
The groups insisted that the Presidency must return to the southern part of the country.
But, the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) led by Prof. Ango Abdullahi, is frowning at zoning of presidency, demanding that all major political parties should throw their tickets open to all sections of the country.
