Former Governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau has joined the leagues of Nigerians calling for rotation of power to the south in 2023.
He voiced out this opinion when having an interview on state of the nation with Channels Television on Thursday.
He added that since Buhari will be completing his second term in 2023, after eight years “common sense tells one that we should look the other side, to the Southern part of Nigeria”.
“The Constitution of Nigeria or the constitution of any of the political parties didn’t say if I am from the North, my running mate must be from the South. It is not written but if today, I am a presidential candidate from Kano and I tell you my running mate is from Bauchi, you will say something is wrong with me.
“The presidency has just been from the North for eight years. Common sense tells us that we should look at the other side, to the Southern part of Nigeria. We should recognise the North and the South, this is elementary geography and history.
“Perception is what you have to carry along. If you continue to dominate on one particular side, the perception from the other side is, ‘What about me?’”
