An activist, Deji Adeyanju has advocated that the next Nigerian president should rather come from the northern part of Nigeria rather of the South West.
DAILY POST reports that there have actually been agitations for power rotation from the North to the South after President Muhammadu Buhari finishes his tenure in 2023.
For that reason, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has decided to select its presidential candidate from the South.
The southern part of Nigeria consists of the South West, South and South East.
In a post early on Friday, Adeyanju believed that the South West should not produce the next president if truly power must go to the south.
According to him, the South West was in power for 8 years and likewise has another chance as the Vice President for another eight years.
While stating that the present democracy does not come from the South West, Adeyanju preserved that those clamouring for power to go to the South West were worse than those asking that power should remain in the North.
He explained them as being self-centered and tribalistic.
His words: “It is better for power to stay in the North than for power to go to the South West for another 8 years. It will be manifestly unjustified for power to go to the South West once again after they got 8 years as president and another 8 years as VP.
“This democracy does not come from the South West. Those clamoring for power to go to the South and pushing for South West are even worse than those asking power to stay in the North. These individuals are not thinking about equity but tribalism and self-centered interest.”
