2023: Presidency Should Be Zoned To Southern Nigeria, Says Ganduje
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state has said that the presidency in 2023 should be zoned to the South.
Speaking in an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today which aired on Friday February 12, Ganduje said that though zoning is not enshrined in the constitution, it is however a strategy for winning elections.
“The Southern part of the country but there should be a consensus of the members.
“Zoning system even though it is not in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it is a strategy for winning elections.”
When asked if the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has done well for Nigerians since coming into power in 2015, the Kano state Governor said the ruling party under President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership improved on Nigeria’s security situation as well as fixing the nation’s economy.
Ganduje also expressed confidence in the ruling party winning the 2023 general election and maintaining its winning streak by holding to power at the federal level.
“I think in 2023, APC will win the election because more people are coming into the party. Though we lost some governors because of intraparty problems, at the same time some are coming into the party.
“Also there is a very strong movement now to reconcile the major actors and I think that is also making the party stronger.”
