Why Igbo, Yoruba May Not Get 2023 Presidency – Shehu Sani

Shehu Sani has advised the South-East and South-West to collaborate if they want to wrestle power from the North in the 2023 Presidential Election.

Speaking in Abuja on Saturday at an interactive session organised by the Correspondents Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, the former Senator said the 2023 Presidency may elude Igbos and Yorubas if they are not united.

Sani aid while it may be unfair for the North to hold on to power after 2023, the southern bloc must unite to confront the posture of those in power.

He stated that there is a possibility of producing a Northern president in 2023 if the East and the West remain divided.

According to Shehu Sani, “It will be unfair for other sections of the country if one section uses its topographic or demographic advantage to hold onto power, knowing full well that it was not the topography or demographic advantage that delivered them to power.

“Rotation of power is what I prescribe and stood for, whether that power goes to the East or West, it is dependent on the people from the South.

“What I will say is that there is a possibility of producing a Northern president in 2023 if the East and the West remain divided in their resolve on the governance of the Country.

“It is this division that will be exploited by those who are proposing the issue of competence.”
