Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has urged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to honour the ‘informal agreement’ of ensuring that power goes to the southern region of the country in 2023.
El-rufai’s stated this yesterday, while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme – amid controversy on which geopolitical zone should produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.
Speaking during the programme, El-Rufai said that though he is against zoning personally, the APC should honour its informal agreement on the zoning of the president.
El-Rufai said: “I think it is important to make this clarification. Personally, I am against zoning because I believe that no country has made progress choosing leaders based on where they come from or their ethnicity or religion. I am against and I don’t practise it.
“However, I believe after the eight years of President Muhammadu Buhari, we should honour the informal agreement of ensuring that power goes to the south. Whether it is southwest, southeast, south-south, that is a different matter.
“But what we have a gentleman agreement that the power should go to the south and I support that. It is up to the party, at the right time, to make that decision. Our party has not taken any position as far as I know.”
