2023: El-Rufai declares support for power shift

The executive Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has said that the presidential seat should be shifted to the south come 2023 election.

In an interview with BBC Hausa, which was monitored by Obinwannem News, the Governor said that even though the power shift arrangement among the various regions of the country is unconstitutional, it is still a political design that must be respected.

This is coming after President Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, said he was against zoning of the presidency.

The Governor went ahead to say that even though he supports power rotation at the national level, he was against a similar arrangement in Kaduna where he is governor.

“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,” Mr. El-Rufai said.

“I believe that (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 in rotational leadership.

” We are aware of that, anyone who denies that is wrong,” the governor said.

“In Kaduna, I don’t work with people because they came from a particular zone, rather, I work with you based on your capacity to deliver on a task given to you and your ability to keep public trust.

“It is a baseless speculation. I don’t want to be president; only God decides someone’s future whether you like it or not, I have never shown interest for the presidency.” He added.
