Demanding power shifts to southern Nigeria in 2023 foolish – El-Rufai
Nasir El-Rufai, governor of Kaduna State, has described as “foolish” the demand for power shift to the south of Nigeria.
“We are not saying there cannot be a rotational presidency,” he said.
“It can be done but you have to come and sit with the politicians in the north and dialogue and then we agree to give our support to the south but no one has the right to sit in Lagos or Port Harcourt and say whether northerners want it or not, they must relinquish power to the south, that is wrong.
“It is not how we do politics and in fact, it is foolish.”
TheCornet reports that El-Rufai had previously supported the return of political power to the South.
