‘North-Central should produce Nigeria’s president in 2023’

NCP has appealed to political parties in Nigeria to zone their 2023 presidential tickets to North-Central for equity and justice.

The North Central Patriot (NCP), a pressure group, has appealed to political parties in Nigeria to zone their 2023 presidential tickets to North-Central for equity and justice.

The NCP said this in a statement by its President, Bitrus Paul, in Abuja.

Mr Paul explained that the North-Central had not produced a civilian president since the return to civil rule in 1999.

“The South-West and South-South have ruled the country in the person of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo from the South-West and former President Goodluck Jonathan from South-South.,” he stated.

Speaking further, he noted that “if you critically look at the situation, you will discover that southern Nigeria has done 14 years, while northern Nigeria will only achieve 10 years at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure” in 2023.

“For justice and equity, the North-Central should be allowed to take over in 2023 so that northern Nigeria will be able to catch up with the South,” he appealed.

Mr Paul faulted the Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum’s position clamouring for power shift from the North to the South.

According to him, NCP has always maintained that the North-Central does not require party chairmanship but the presidency.
