‘That’s Not How We Do Politics, It Is Foolish To Sit In Lagos Or Port Harcourt And Demand Power Shift’ – El-Rufai Fires Back At Southern Governors
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has clarified the position of Northern Governors Forum on power shift.
At a meeting in Kaduna on Monday, the governors had said rotational presidency was against Nigeria’s constitution, Daily Trust reports.

They said this in reaction to the demand of their Southern counterparts who have demanded that their region must produce Nigeria’s next president.
El-Rufai noted that no one should assume that they can sit in Lagos or Port Harcourt and decide what the north should do or who the north should vote for.
“We are not saying there cannot be rotational presidency, it can be done but you have to come and sit with the politicians in the north and dialogue and then we agree to give our support to the south but no one has the right to sit in Lagos or Port Harcourt and say whether northerners want it or not, they must relinquish power to the south, that is wrong, it is not how we do politics and in fact, it is foolish.”
It’s becoming more clearer that some northern governors may not be desperate to return Northerner after President Buhari’s tenure in 2023, last week, Nasarawa State Governor throws weight behind Osinbajo’s Presidency, despite the Vice President who hasn’t declare interest to run.
