Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna state, has spoken against south insistence on power shift to the region.
According to Daily Trust, the governor was quoted to have said it is foolish for anyone to insist that the north must give power to the south in 2023.
He reportedly stated this while speaking with journalists in Kaduna on Monday.
El-rufai was reacting to the demand of southern governors who had called for power shift to the south in 2023.
He said: “We are not saying there cannot be a rotational presidency,”
“It can be done but you have to come and sit with the politicians in the north and dialogue and then we agree to give our support to the south but no one has the right to sit in Lagos or Port Harcourt and say whether northerners want it or not, they must relinquish power to the south, that is wrong.
“It is not how we do politics and in fact, it is foolish.”
