The Governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said the presidential slot should be given to the Southern region, ahead of the 2023 elections.
Ganduje stated during an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today which aired on Friday.
“The Southern part of the country but there should be a consensus of the members.
“Zoning system even though it is not in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it is a strategy for winning elections,” he said.
When asked if the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has done well for Nigerians since coming into power in 2015, Ganduje replied: “I think in 2023, APC will win the election because more people are coming into the party. Though we lost some governors because of intraparty problems, at the same time some are coming into the party.
“Also there is a very strong movement now to reconcile the major actors and I think that is also making the party stronger,” he added.
