2023: Presidency should return to Northern Nigeria – Fani-Kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has disclosed why the Presidency should return to the northern part of Nigeria.

In a series of tweets he posted on his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode said the North-Central and North-East geo-political zones have never produced a Nigerian President.

The tweet stated: “There are two zones in the North that have not produced a democratically-elected President.

The NC (North-Central) has NEVER done so & the NE (North-East) produced a Prime Minister 62 years ago, who was unable to finish his tenure because he was killed. Is it fair to deny them & the Igbo, who have never produced a democratically-elected President either, the right to produce the next President? “

The former minister explained that the Ndigbo should be given the ‘first right of refusal’ regarding producing Nigeria’s next President.

He noted that any discussion of a southern presidency that does not give the Igbos the first right of refusal is deceitful.

Fani-Kayode further wrote: “Any talk of a Southern Presidency that does not offer the Igbo the right of first refusal for the position is deceitful. And if you say no to the Igbos, which clearly both parties have done even if they don’t say it publicly, then I say let the Presidency go back to the North! That is why I am supporting a Northern aspirant.

“Southerners must learn to be fair to one another before they can expect to be treated fairly by others”.
