Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum has expressed that power should move to the southern part of the country in 2023.
He expressed that this should happen for the sake of fairness.
He faulted the suspicion that any part of the country could not be trusted with power, perhaps for the fear of secession.
He spoke in Lagos on Friday at the 17th Chief Gani Fawehinmi annual lecture, themed ‘The constitutional history of Nigeria’s dysfunction: Any pathway to indivisibility and common progress?’ which was an event organised by the Nigerian Bar Association, Ikeja Branch, to celebrate the life and times of the late Fawehinmi.
He pointed out that there was a need for fairness in the country for common progress to occur, and marginalisation had become the loudest concern from the citizenry.
At the event, Governor Zulum also called on south-easterners to negotiate for power rather than expect others to leave it for them.
