Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, says southerners will not support any political party produce a northern candidate for the presidency in 2023.
NEWSCASTARS.COM learnt that Akeredolu said this during an interview on Channels Television on Friday saying that the presidency must be zoned to the South, for the sake of justice and fairness.
“There are three political parties in the Southern Governors’ Forum: the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“All of us are unanimous in our position that the next president of this country must come from the South.
“I believe that any party that picks somebody from the North would have to face the whole southern region because they will not support it.
“We are saying that there must be what I will call rotation. The justice of it and the fairness in it is what we are preaching. If President Buhari has been in office for eight years, it can’t be from the North. The next president must come from the South,” Akeredolu said
