Kalu, who is now a senator representing Abia North district said this in an apparent disagreement with the Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai.

Recall that Governor El-Rufai had recently advocated an end to rotational presidency, saying competence should take preeminence.

Reacting, Senator Kalu warned the northern political elites against clamouring an end to zoning, while also insisting that it was the turn of the Igbo as regards who becomes the next president.

He frowned at anybody advocating an end to the zoning system until the south east region produces the president like other regions have done in the past.

“Calling for an end to the zoning arrangement now will not bring peace to Nigeria. We have to complete the zoning system. That was the agreement at the earlier constitutional conference.

“All the major ethnic groups must produce the President before we would all agree that zoning has ended”. He said.
