Some All Progressives Congress (APC) legislators in all the houses of Assembly in the Northeast region have revealed that the Northern region has more years to spend after President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to SaharaReporters, the group of lawmakers clamoured for the APC Presidential ticket to be zoned to the Northern region while they also passed a vote of confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari and the Mai Mala Buni- led Caretaker Committee of the party respectively.
Defending a communiqué signed by Alhaji Sadique Ibrahim after an extraordinary meeting, the group of lawmakers said the North would have ruled for 10 years as against South’ s 14 years after the incumbent administration.
” This is because the North will have ruled for 10 years at the end of President Buhari’ s tenure, while the South has ruled for 14 years. ” it partly reads
Meanwhile, after passing the vote of confidence in both the President and the governor of Yobe State, they commended the former for cohesive leadership and urged him not to be relentless in his effort in making the country better. They however praised the latter’ s effort in repositioning the affairs of the party.
The lawmakers also extended their commendation to other members of Buni- led committee for making the party a centre of attraction to political top guns.
In recent times, there has been increasing calls for the country’ s most coveted political seat to be zone to the northern.
The rationale behind this call was informed by the death of President Umaru Musa Yar’ adua who died after two years of becoming the country’ s helmsman.
The decision of the former Vice- President Goodluck Jonathan to contest the 2011 elections which he eventually won further justified the callers’ argument.
Similarly, other dissenting voices feel the Presidency should be zoned to the Southern region especially the Southeast for lasting peace, equity and fairness.
In all of these various calls and based on their respective arguments, which of the zones deserve the presidential seat to you and why?
