On Friday a northern youths group has said that it will not be in the best interest of the country to promote zoning or power shift.
The leader of the group known as Tambuwal Volunteers, Comrade Bilal Sidi Abubakar, in a media briefing in Abuja said that power has rotated from the South to the North since 1999, stressing that 2023 is an opportunity for Nigeria to get it right by voting a competent person that will move the country forward instead of selection.
The group opined that the presidential race should be open to all, pointing out that a competent leader to lead the affairs of the country should be elected devoid of any affiliations.
According to Bilal Sidi Abubakar, “There has been zoning since 1999 and both the North and the South have produced presidents but we are still lagging behind.”
He suggested that the time has come for Nigerians to demand a competent person to emerge as president in 2023 because the country is lagging behind, saying that that is the only Nigerians could be emancipated from all spheres of life.
