Wike Thanks Nigerians For Backing Power Shift To South, Says Rotational Presidency Settled

After Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) was declared by INEC, as the winner of the 2023 Presidential elections, Gov Nyesom Wike expressed his delight that Gov Seyi Makinde, the Executive Governor of Oyo State, is one of those that backed power shift to the south after the eight-year tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari. This happened at Oyo State on Friday, during the commissioning of a project.

Wike said, “I am happy he (Makinde) is one of those that made history by making sure that power shifts to the south. “I have told people that those who fight for change, who fight for revolution may not be directed beneficiaries of that fight but today, history has it that all of us now are aware that when power finishes from the south, it will go to the north; when it finishes from the north, it will come to the south”

Gov Nyesom Wike noted that it doesn't need to be written in the constitution at all before power rotation is implemented. He thanked Nigerians for standing firm to see that this issue materialise.
