Former Governor of Nasarawa State, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, has described as “wishful thinking”, calls for the zoning of political offices, ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Adamu, who represents Nasarawa West Senatorial District, made this known during an interactive session with newsmen in Abuja.

According to him, such calls are unconstitutional, noting that they remain wishful thinking only.

”We are not being practical. How do you zone it? The constitution says you can only become a president through the ballot box.

“There is nowhere in the Nigerian constitution which says we should zone any office. There is Federal Character. That is the constitution.

“The Constitution is being reviewed. If you want to review and you want a specific provision, that presidential office to be the zone in such a manner you tell us how you want it zoned.

“You can’t just whisk away, a situation that is fundamental to the life of a country.

“You can’t talk of merit and talk of zoning. On the issue of rotation, let us just go by merit.

“Let every party find a way of selling itself in a manner, as to garner the kind of vote to deliver the presidential result. It is as simple as that,” he said

He noted that such was the government of the people, by the people and for the people and should not be changed.
