By Paul Kalu

Sources to the Newwavereporters as gathered on Sunday, July 11, 2021, had it that the controversy over the zoning of the 2023 presidency has significantly recorded empathy as no fewer than six northern governors are backing the South for the nation’s top office.

These governors spoke about their preference for power to move from the North in the next elections.

The incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari who is from the Northern Nigeria is due to complete his maximum eight years’ tenure in government in 2023.

Recall he succeeded former President Goodluck Jonathan who hails from the South.

Dr. Jonathan had completed two of the four-year term of his predecessor, Alhaji Musa Yar’Adua, a northerner who took ill and died in office in 2009 and won another four-year term which he also completed in 2015.


Subsequently he sought another term but lost to the incumbent.

The latest of the six governors to speak are Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State and his Borno State counterpart, Professor Babagana Zulum

Their 17 counterparts from the South had stoked the latest controversy, last Monday, when they laid claim to the 2023 President.
