Southerners Should Produce the Next President of Nigeria - El-Rufai

It has been revealed in an interview on BBC Hausa on Saturday that the South should produce the next president of Nigeria come 2023.

This was said by the Governor of Kaduna State Nasir El-Rufai after dening he has ambition to contest for presidency in three years.

According to him, he will not support a Northerner to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023. 

He futher said “In Nigerian politics, there is a system of rotation, in which everyone agrees that if the north rules for eight years, the south will rule for eight years. 

“That is why I came out and said that after President Buhari has been in office for eight years, no northerner should run for office. Let the Southerners also have eight years."

“It has been said that I have loved the presidency since I was a minister in the FCT. I do not want the Nigerian presidency.” He added.
