Next President Should Emerge From The South - Southern Governors

The governors of the southern states have decided that the President's successor, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd. ), should be from the region.

This was one of the conclusions they made during their meeting in Lagos on Monday.

The governors also discussed insecurity, constitutional amendment, PIB, and anti-open grazing legislation in all member states at the meeting.

While applauding lawmakers for passing the Petroleum Industry Bill, they were against allocating 3% of earnings to host communities.

“Re-affirmed their commitment to the unity of Nigeria on the foundations of equity, fairness, justice, progress, and peaceful co-existence between and among its people,” the Forum concluded after the meeting.

“The Forum reaffirms its commitment to justice and fairness in politics and unanimously agrees that the President of Nigeria should be cycled between Southern and Northern Nigeria, with the next president emerging from the Southern Region.”

Eight weeks had passed since the governors convened in Asaba, Delta State's capital.

Aside from the host governor, others at the meeting are Ben Ayade (Cross Rivers), Ifeanyi Okowa (Delta), David Umahi (Ebonyi), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Hope Uzodimma (Imo), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Adegboyega Oyetola (Osun), Oluwaseyi Makinde (Oyo), Nyesom Wike (Rivers),
