Professor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has said that the Presidency of Nigeria should go to the South come 2023.
He said in a Channels Television interview Wednesday morning that every right-thinking member of the All Progressive Congress (APC) should know that the party is a democratic one that beliefs in the rotation ideology for the sake of fairness.
As a result, it would not be right to play the politics of exclusivity instead of inclusivity which should carry the entire people along
for the sake of dividends of democracy.
Reacting to the outcome of the meeting of the Southern Governors Forum, the chair of the North-east Governors Forum noted that it would however not be fair for his colleagues to use the word “must” when lobbying to achieve their aim because politics is a game of numbers and things must always be done democratically.
On security, the Governor revealed that from the knowledge he has as the chief security officer of Borno state, a lot still needs to be done to right the wrongs within the security sector if not we still have a long way to go in the insurgency warfare.
” For instance, ninety per cent of their funds goes into recurrent expenditure leaving only ten per cent for equipment and the rest. I have seen their needs and I believe there is so much they still need in terms of equipment.
“We must do something to correct these anomalies if we must make progress to end this war”, he stressed.
METROWATCH is an online daily newspaper founded in October 2013 by a seasoned reporter, Collins Edomaruse. He had risen to the position of General Editor in his 18 years stint at THISDAY newspaper, an appointment he resigned on October 30, 2013 to pursue his online newspaper publishing dream. Prior to his appointment as the newspaper’s General Editor, he had served, at various times, as Editor, Nation’s Capital; Group News Editor, Associate Editor, and Deputy Editor at different times for the newspaper’s three titles – Daily, Sunday and Saturday.
Edomaruse had covered education, sports, energy, national security, defence and transport beats among others. As a defence correspondent, Edomaruse traversed the war zones of both Liberia and Sierra-Leone in the dark days of Charles Taylor and Foday Sanko as warlords, which earned him the sobriquet “General” by his colleagues in the newsroom.
METROWATCH will act as a catalyst in our debate and desire for a crime-free Nigeria and provide the much-needed platform for all, irrespective of social, religious or political divide, to express their views.
METROWATCH will strive to bring to the public domain issues of bad governance, dirty business, hostile neighborliness, security challenges and other crime issues that are always begging for attention in Nigeria.
We will pursue this course with every vigor in our drive for the TRUTH and FAIRNESS.
