2023: Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) backs southern governors on power shift

The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) has slammed the Northern Governors' Forum (NGF) for their recent resolution that the North will not cede the presidency to the South in 2023. The NGF, on Monday, in its Kaduna summit said it is unconstitutional for its southern counterpart to demand that the next Nigerian president should come from the southern part of the country. While this stance has been condemned by various groups and people from the South, SOKAPU lent its voice to it on Wednesday, accusing the Northern governors of insensitivity. 

The group lambasted northern leaders for deliberating to retain power when they should be seeking ways to solve the problem of insecurity in their states. It thereby stated that the Northern populace they usually relied on for votes is no longer united.  It will be recalled that the governors from the Southern part of the country under the aegis of Southern Governors Forum, had in its meeting resolved that the next President of the country in 2023 should come from the South after President Buhari, who is from the North must have completed eight years in office.

While The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) rejected the position of the Southern governors that the 2023 presidency should be zoned to the Southern part of the country, arguing that the presidency is a democratic office and not a rotational position.
