The former Governor of Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, has reacted to the statement of the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, that the Southern part of the country should be allowed to produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.
The elder statesman also stated that the next president of Nigeria in 2023 should come from the Southeast.
The Kaduna State Governor had stated that the North had no justification to hold onto power at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in 2023.
Musa who supported that statement of the Kaduna State Governor stressed that in the interest of justice, peace and equity, the presidency should go the Southeast.
According to Musa: “El-Rufai said the Presidency should go to the South right? I’m also saying the presidency should go to the Southeast for the sake of justice, peace and equality.”
However, the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, Kola Ologbondiyan described El-Rufai’s comment as a political statement.
Ologbodiyan stated that PDP at the right time would reveal its next line of action to the 2023 elections.
“El-Rufai is operating within a political climate and he’s at liberty to make political statements as far as PDP is concerned at the appropriate time the party would decide its approach to use at the 2023 election.”
