Northern Group backs Yemi Osinbajo for President in 2023 Elections.
Written by News Room on January 7, 2022
The northern group Arewa Consensus Assembly, on Thursday canvassed for the micro-zoning of the presidency to the South-Western part of the country in the interest of justice and equity ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The group said that the agitation by some people that the presidency should be retained to the North will further divide the country, adding that the focus should be more on equitable distribution of power.
While addressing a press conference after their meeting in Kaduna, Chairman of the group, Daniel Shawulu, said the real interest of the North is about the vast majority of the people and not the parochial interest of a few politicians, who he said are usually more vocal and claim to speak on behalf of the region.
He equally endorsed Vice president Yemi Osibanjo as the right candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
The decision, according to Shawulu, is based on his competence and knowledge of the current socio-economic and security challenges confronting the country.
