The governor of Kaduna State in Nigeria, Nasir El-Rufai, has demanded the return of power to the southern part of the country in 2023 after the term of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Kaduna State Governor said this during an interview with the BBC.

He said: “If you look at how I am, I don’t consider anyone working with me for the area they come from. I’m looking at merit. I’m looking at who if entrusted to the public will handle it properly.”

He added, “In Nigerian politics, there is a rotation system, where everyone agrees that if the north rules for eight years, the south will rule for eight years.”

Rufai said although the acceptance process was not written in the constitution, but every politician in the country was aware of it.

‘That is why I came out and said that after President Buhari is eight years old, no northerner should run for office. Let the southerners also have eight years.”

When asked if he intends to run for president, he said: “It has been said that I like the president since I was the minister in Abuja, but I do not. It is nonsense.”

Furthermore, he noted that God gives leadership, “whether you like it or not, he can give it to you.”

“But I have never applied for the presidency of Nigeria and no one will say I have applied for it,” he opined.
