Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has insisted that the Presidency of Nigeria must come to the South in 2023 so as not to thwart the power rotation arrangement in the country.
Akeredolu said power rotation had been an unwritten agreement in the country since the return to civil rule in 1999, saying the arrangement must not be changed now.
He said this yesterday at the one-year remembrance of Professor Bankole Oke of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Ibadan, while delivering a lecture entitled, ‘Nigeria: The politics of religion in a transitional society.’
He advised Nigerians to make sure that power did not return to the North under what he described as the guise of a party picking a southerner as its vice presidential candidate.
The governor also warned Nigerians to beware of the tricks of desperate politicians using religion to divide the people.
