Presidency: PANDEF urges Northerners to wait till 2031
The Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF has advised Northern politicians who intended to run for president should wait till 2031.
The National Publicity Secretary, PANDEF, Ken Robinson, said this in a statement on Thursday.
He joined the call by prominent Nigerians for power to be rotated to the South in 2023.
Robinson frowned at statements made by some politicians that the presidency should be open to all zones in 2023, describing the call as moving the goalpost in the 87th of a 90-minute game.
He mentioned that the North would have completed the statutory eight years by 2023; it is, therefore, only reasonable and fair that power should rotate to the South, as has been the case for 22 years of the Third Republic.
Robinson also faulted the practice of zoning the presidency, adding that it is unpatriotic and self-serving.
