The national President and spokesperson of the Arewa Youths Consultative forum, (AYCF) Yerima Shetimma has kicked against the decision of the southern Governors in which they are demanding for the 2023 president to be zoned in their region.
It was reported earlier that the17 southern governors met in Lagos some days ago and one of the major outcomes of the meeting was that the president should be shifted to the south.
The governors explained that, since president Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently in power, is a Northerner, the best thing is to shift the presidency to the other region for the sake of equity.
In the statement of Yerima Shettima, according to the Daily Post, he claimed that Northerners will still have another 4 years after the administration of president Muhammadu Buhari.
The Southern Governors can not intimidate us with zoning because the former president Olusegun Obasanjo and Good luck Jonathan have 14 years of being president in favor of the southerners, while the late Umar Muss Yar’adua and president Muhammad Buhari will have 10 years in 2023.
If it is true that we are doing Zoning, Good Luck. Jonathan shouldn’t have contest in 2011 that he won the election. He should have let the north have their 8 years consecutively.
Obasanjo and Jonathan ruled for 14 years, while Northerners will rule for 10 years in 2023. We can never let southern governors intimidate us in any way.
