2023 Presidential Election - Governors from the north are calling for a power shift.


Governors from the north have thrown their support to the Southern Presidency, arguing that after President Muhammadu Buhari's eight years in office, it is only right for another region to take control.

At least 11 All Progressives Congress (APC) governors said in a statement on Saturday that the search for Buhari's successor should be limited to the South.

"Today, APC governors and political leaders from Nigeria's northern states met to evaluate the current situation and to pledge their continued support for our Party in providing progressive leadership in the face of our country's issues." We applauded President Muhammadu Buhari's request to governors and other stakeholders to help the APC find a strong presidential candidate during our meeting."

"Following much consideration, we have come to the strong conclusion that, after President Muhammadu Buhari's eight years in government, the APC's presidential candidate for the 2023 elections should be one of our thronging members from Nigeria's southern states." 

For the APC, it is a matter of honour, a commitment that is unaffected by the decisions of another political party. We affirm that adhering to this concept is in the best interests of developing a stronger, more united, and more progressive country. 

As a result, we strongly urge President Muhammadu Buhari to limit the hunt for a successor as the APC's presidential candidate to our southern brothers and sisters. In the national interest, we urge all contestants from northern states to withdraw, leaving only aspirants from the south to compete in the primaries. 

We are heartened by our esteemed colleague, Governor Abubakar Badaru's choice to contribute to this patriotic cause by relinquishing his presidential ambitions. 

The APC must make the 2023 elections an occasion for nation-building, reiterating that a democratic path to power exists for everyone who respect cooperation and want to establish national platforms. This time necessitates the most rational and inclusive method to picking our party's nominee, and we urge all APC leaders to step up to the plate."
