Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, says Southern Nigeria should produce the next President.
President Muhammadu Buhari who contested under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) swept to power in 2015 after defeating ex-President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Buhari was also re-elected in 2019 after beating PDP’s Atiku Abubakar and will complete his constitutionally mandated tenure in 2023.
But Masari who spoke during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today which aired on Friday said a non-northerner should succeed President Buhari in 2023.
“If you ask me as a person Aminu, I think we should move the presidency to the southern part of the country,” he said when asked which zone should have the 2023 presidency.
