When we formed the PDP, we also entrenched in our constitution the doctrine of zoning and vitality rotation between the regions. The first zone that took the slot changed into as soon as southern Nigeria, and why we did so changed into as soon as very lucid.

“In 2019, we zoned it to northern Nigeria, and all other folks that contested the imprint were from the North. After Jonathan, it returned to the North, which is going to full eight years now. So, by all known conventions now we contain adopted in Nigeria, the presidency ought to smooth reach to southern Nigeria. We don’t judge it is upright to alternate the aim put up within the midst of the sport.

We’ve taken a detailed survey on the matter in Nigeria; the absolute top design things are being gallop within the nation does no longer promote the solidarity of the nation.

“There is that this perspective of every other folks feeling that they are entitled to circulate others, believing that they’ve the population and structural advantage. This makes them attach whatever they love. What is necessary is that the nation survives.

“For us with the map to preserve collectively as a nation, we ought with the map to respect every other. We ought with the map to portion vitality. We ought to smooth portion things that now we contain as Nigerians so as that they are going to be on hand to all people.

“You would possibly perchance perchance presumably gaze it already. You know what is occurring in Nigeria that the North does no longer wish to agree that southern Nigeria ought to smooth compose the following President after Buhari. That’s the reason they’re all over making an strive to converse us things as although they know better than us. Coming to southern Nigeria, the first deployment of our vitality will be to build the North respect the South that it is their flip after Buhari. The North ought to smooth no longer be gunning for it. It would be unfair.

“When we rep down house, we will survey on the absolute top design it has long previous around the South and know what to connect. It’s far definite that it is pointing against the South-East, which has no longer had a shot on the presidency.”
