An Igbo Chieftain has lauded Southern Governors on their resolute that the 2023 presidency should rotate to the south, saying that their demand will help the presidency to stabilize the country.

The chieftain who is the custodian of the Igbo natives in Jos-South, Plateau State, Igwe Lawrence Onwudinjo, said for equity and justice to prevail it is only wise for politicians and Nigerians to respect the gentleman agreement of zoning.

Speaking to our correspondent on Wednesday in Jos, Igwe Onwudinjo fault those who said that the Southern Governors are working against the president for demanding power shift to the South.

According to him: “In 2015 when the North demanded for presidency agitating that it was their right, did anyone said they were working against former president Jonathan?.

“The demand for southern presidency is for equity and fairness. I am not a politician but I think equity demands that it should be rotated”, he said.

On the ban on open grazing, Onwudinjo reiterated that the Governors from the southern region are also just helping the country to end the incessant killings between the herders and farmers.

“Many lives have been lost as a result of farmers herders conflict, but if end to open grazing is implemented with alternative to ranching, many lives will be saved”, Onwudinjo said.

It would be recalled that the Southern Governor’s Forum (SGF), has insisted on rotational presidency, saying Nigeria’s president in 2023 must come from the south.

The decision was taken after their meeting on Monday at the Lagos State House in Alausa, Ikeja.
