Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai on Sunday insisted that nothing is going to stop him from giving his support for the south to produce the president in 2023.
El-Rufai, who spoke on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics, said based on arrangement, after President Muhammadu Buhari, the presidency should shift to the South.
He said he did not say he would not support a northern or southern candidate, but that it is just a fact that power had to shift to the south in 2023, even though there was no such power sharing in the APC’s constitution.
“After Buhari, what is honourable is for the northern politicians to put their support for southern candidate. I don’t believe in zoning but that is my opinion. We have this arrangement, we should maintain it.
“I don’t believe any part of Nigeria has a monopoly to power. We have an understanding, let us stick to it. In 1998, this nation has a consensus that power should go to the southwest.
“In 2023, I believe that all parties should present candidates from the south,” he stated.
