The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the statement made by former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, that a southerner should be the next president of Nigeria.

Fayose, a former PDP presidential aspirant on Wednesday via his Twitter handle, said the party’s constitution allows for power rotation, adding that it is either a southern president or nothing.

He said;

“The current President of Nigeria is a 2-term Northern Presidency, thus implying that it MUST be a Southern Presidency in 2023 or NOTHING. Awa ‘South’ lo kan’. Nigerians should await details soon.

“PDP Constitution provides for a rotational Presidency. Section 3(c) provides that the Party shall pursue its aims & objectives by “adhering to the policy of the rotation & zoning of Party & Public elective offices in pursuance of the principle of equity, justice and fairness.”

“I am a senior politician in this country and I know what I am talking about and what I am doing. If we allow this country to become something else beyond our control, Our children will ask us in future.

“If APC can be gentlemanly enough to concede the presidency to the south, what is PDP waiting for?

“I am coming out very strongly and in the next few days, you will see the fireworks. Already Obi and Kwankwaso have left the PDP and they have taken some PDP votes along with them. So, PDP is fragmented seriously.

“The Atiku camp are already behaving as if they have won the presidency already.”

Reacting to this, Atiku’s media aide, Paul Ibe said the PDP presidential candidate will continue to appeal to aggrieved persons ahead of the 2023 election.

He said, “It is normal for our people to be aggrieved but the PDP has a way of resolving issues like this and that will be done and we all shall be happy.

“Because the bigger challenge is winning the election, kicking out the APC and stopping them from the many years of impoverishing our people.”
