Northerners should wait till 2031 to be president, says PANDEF
The Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has advised politicians from the northern region seeking the presidency to wait till 2031.
In a statement issued in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital, today, Ken Robison, National Publicity Secretary of the forum, said this is for “the sake of national harmony and peace”.
He said everyone has the right to take part in the governance, to vote and be voted for but stated the need to uphold the indispensable principles of fairness, equity, and justice noting that “without these, there can be no overall peace and progress”.
Robison said it should be unthinkable that a Northerner should be elected president at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s two tenures of eight years.
