Governor Nasir El-Rufai pledge support for southern presidency come 2023


Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has made a fresh case for the south to produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023.

El-Rufai said that the country’s political arrangement requires a southerner to take over from Buhari.

He added that although the power rotation arrangement runs contrary to the constitution, it is a political exigency that deserves to be respected by all parties.

He denied the speculations that he is aspiring to become president, dismissing them as baseless.
