Great Tension In The North, As APC Set To Break Up, Over 2023 Southern Presidency

Ahmed Lawal, the Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Adamawa State, on Sunday, has insisted that power must shift to the Southern part of Nigeria, in 2023.

Lawal made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.

He stressed the need to demonstrate fairness in the polity, adding that, the Southern part of Nigeria supported the Northern part to retain power for eight years.

He advised the APC to ensure power rotation in 2023, to enhance national cohesion.

He rejected comments from those he called “some selfish Northern Politicians”, intent on shortchanging the South, in the scheme of power play.

The Organising Secretary, said that the proponents of power retention in the North are selfish, as they cannot claim to be speaking for the entire North.

“We must rotate power to Southern Nigeria, for the spirit of equity, fairness, and harmony.

“As far as Nigerian unity is concerned, power shift must become a stabilising principle, so that no region will feel relegated and oppressed politically.
