Former 8th Assembly Senator backs Rotational Presidency.

Written by on January 11, 2022

A member of the 8th Senate from Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani, has backed a rotational presidency for equity and balance ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He stated this on Tuesday during an interview on national television amid debate over who would succeed President Muhammadu Buhari who completes his second term in office next year.

While the zoning of the ticket to contest the highest office in the land by political parties has continued to generate more reactions, the 17 southern governors in July last year demanded that the region must produce the next president.

Besides politics, Senator Sani also spoke about the security situation in the country, especially the banditry in the North West and parts of the North Central.

He said that bandits have become a state within a state because despite attacking communities, they end up installing traditional rulers as well as imams.

The former lawmaker asked authorities to step up efforts against the criminals, adding that more should be done by the government to secure the lives and properties of the people.

According to him, the recent attacks on several villages in Zamfara were in response to the military campaign launched against the bandits.
