Ahead of the 2023 presidential, House of Representatives and Senatorial elections in Nigeria, a fourth Republic Senator from Plateau State, Senator Davou DB Zang has advocated for the presidential position to shift from the North to the Southern Part of the country.
Senator Zang stated this while speaking in an interview with a newspaper house in Jos.
He said there has been Political arrangement between the North and the South since the advent of the current democracy, stressing that it was, as a result of such arrangement that Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo was voted into power in 1999 to placate the Yorubas who were nursing the pains of annulment of June 12th of 1993.
According to the Senator, late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua who was from the North took over from the former President Obasanjo as President even though he died midway into his first tenure.
Senator Zang advised northern Governors not to make the mistake of insisting that the 2023 Presidency should remain in the North.
Adding that the Southern part of the country should be left to decide whether South-West, South-East or South-South should produce the next president of this country come 2023 after the expiration of President Buhari second term in office.
