Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum has urged the All Progressives Congress, APC, to hand over power to southern Nigeria come 2023.
Governor Zulum said shifting power to the south in 2023 will enhance the country’s political security.
Zulum said this while delivering a public lecture on the topic “Security and Economic Growth: Leadership in Challenging Times” at a book launch by Dakuku Peterside, a former Director-General, and CEO of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency with the title Strategic Turnaround, Story of a Government Agency.
He called on the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) to heed his advice and keep to previous agreements made to shift power to the southern part of the country in the next administration.
“I have advocated for power shift to the south and I am not saying this so that I will become the vice president,” Mr Zulum said.
“Although it is not enshrined in the constitution, power rotation is a covenant between our political party and as a devout Muslim it should be kept”.
