For fairness, justice and equity, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, has have been charged to zone the 2023 Presidency to the South.
Ndume, who represents Borno South Senatorial District on the platform of APC and Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, said it would be unfair, unjust justice, a betrayal of trust and a breach of gentleman agreement if the APC, in particular zones the Presidency to the North.
Reacting to zoning the presidency to the North ahead of the APC, PDP’s presidential primaries, he said: “We had an agreement, though not written in 2015 that the North should produce the President. That was why all the presidential aspirants were from the North: Atiku, Nda Isaiah, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Muhammadu Buhari,all contested.
“Only Rochas Okorocha just participated because he already had the governorship ticket in his pocket. He just participated for the sake of it because Buhari even won in Imo State.
”That was why no aspirants contested from South West, South South and South East. I believe in justice; I am not against anybody from the North contesting, it is their constitutional right.”
