This was after El-Rufai advised that the presidency should go to the south in 2023, when the tenure of President Buhari expires.
El-Rufai was quoted by Vanguard saying:
“The general political consensus in Nigeria is that the Presidency should rotate between the North and the South. It is not written but everyone understands it.”
Reacting to the statement, the former minister expressed that the South is more concerned about restructuring of the country than the Presidency in 2023.
See his post below:
To those that seek to appease us by saying that they may concede the Presidency to the south in 2023 I say this. The south is more interested in restructuring or outright independence than the Presidency. Give us our freedom and keep your accursed Presidency.
