“El-rufai 2023 loading” – Nigerians React As El-Rufai Discourages Zoning Presidency

“El-rufai 2023 loading… . It’s obvious with his recent attacks on Tinubu. Also they knew the only way to retain power in the north 2023 is to choose a northern. Anything from the south for APC in 2023 is a no no for the north.  Let the game begins.”

The above remark comes courtesy a twitter user, by the username, @ayemojubar – who was apparently reacting to reports that Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai was discouraging zoning as regards the 2023 presidency.

Mallam El-Rufai is thought to have made a case for the abandonment of the zoning system, as he advised choosing competence ahead of long standing arrangement.

The former FCT minister said the country could not afford to maintain the culture of zoning, going forward.

He said this in a prologue titled, ‘Defeating a Determined Incumbent – The Nigerian Experience’, while contributing to a book authored by the DG of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, Salihu Lukman.

Though unofficial, political parties have internal agreements of rotating important positions -Presidency, governorship – between north and south.

President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC, the current president, is from the north and many believe his successor will comes from the south in 2023.

But the latest remark from El-Rufai has put many into confusion as regards what happens in 2023.

Another twitter user expresses thus, “If he so believes in competence, how come he ended up supporting the most incompetence president Nigeria has ever had?” – @henro006
