2023: Presidency to South will end anomaly in leadership – Coalition


The Coalition of Civil Society for Good Governance (CCSGG), has opined that allowing the South to produce the President in 2023 will end an anomaly in leadership and rewrite many wrongs in the country.

The coalition appealed to politicians to consider the need for the South to produce the President in 2023.

The Convener of CCSGG, Jacob Okpanachi, and the Secretary, Dahiru Al-Mustapha, in a statement noted that in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s promise to deliver good governance, he should sign the Electoral Amendment Bill into law.

The CSOs, under the hashtag #TheNextPresident, appealed to Nigerians on the need for power rotation to southern Nigeria in line with the spirit of nationalism and unity, as exemplified in the leadership pattern in the previous processes in the democratic journey so far.

According to the statement, “There is insecurity and socio-economic and political instability are currently being witnessed in Nigeria; it is imperative that we create a fulcrum for ending every anomaly in leadership by inter alia engaging in the leadership recruitment process but first a template for success must be laid which includes this campaign. The effect of what will happen in 2023 should be done now.”

It explained that #TheNextPresident as a project had seen the need for power rotation to the South.

They reiterated that it was sacrosanct for the political parties, opinion molders, youths and student-based groups and all stakeholders to get involved in the power shift campaign.
