Zone presidential ticket to South, coalition urges parties

A group, the Coalition of Civil Society Groups, has urged political parties to zone their presidential ticket to the South in the spirit of fairness and equity.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Friday, the coalition President, Bassey Williams, said the North has had its fair share of the nation’s leadership and should therefore yield the presidency to the South.He said, “We have watched with keen interest various agitations across the zones of our federating units and we come up with the agenda of championing and clamouring for power shift to the South come 2023.

“There is no doubt that the North has had its fair share of the country’s leadership and now, it is time to zone the Presidency to the southern part of Nigeria, which in our opinion, deserves it.”According to Williams, the political parties cannot exist without the nation and national interest should override the personal interest of those clamouring for the North to retain power in 2023.
