Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has come out to say that any political party that fields a northern candidate for presidency in 2023 risks losing the support of southerners.

He recently revealed this in an interview with Channels TV, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he really believes in justice and fairness, therefore he feels when Buhari finishes his second term in 2023, the next president should come from the South.

He added that every member of the Southern Governors’ Forum is unanimous in the position that the next president of this country must come from the South.

His words, “There are about three political parties that are in the Southern Governors’ Forum, we have the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress. All of us are unanimous in our position that the next president of this country must come from the South.”

“For us, we are unanimous. It (the forum) is not a political platform. I believe that any party that picks somebody from the North would have to face the whole southern region because they will not support it.”

“It has to come from the South. We are saying that there must be what I will call rotation. The justice of it and the fairness in it are what we are preaching. If my president – President Buhari — has been in office for eight years, it can’t be from the North. The next president must come from the South.”

“There are many people that are competent. We have competent people in the North as we have competent people in the South, so the president can come from any part of the country.”
