The president general Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, faults the Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nashir El Rufai’s call for an end to presidential zoning. Isiguzoro in a statement on Friday, August 16, said that that Zoning formula had existed between north and south since 1999, Vanguard reports.
He said: “El Rufai was a major beneficiary of zoning arrangement in 2015 Guber elections in Kaduna, now he wants to thwart the glaring opportunities for a Nigerian president of Igbo stock in 2023.” Isiguzoro also alleged that the Kaduna state governor wants to be the running mate to a Christian pastor who is “studying the body language of the president to know how to navigate the storm at the appropriate time”.
He said that “Christians prayers from Southern Kaduna will never allow him to succeed in his presidential project”. The Ohanaeze youth leader added that exchanging Igbo 2023 presidency for Ruga settlements is a joke. He claimed that credible Northern groups have already asked the southeast to bring forth a presidential candidate that “will rejig Nigeria’s potentials back on track”.
