The Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, has said northern governors of the All Progressives Congress did not necessarily have the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in mind when they supported power shift to the South.

Lalong, who served as the Director-General of Tinubu’s Presidential Campaign Organisation, said their push for southern presidency was to promote the unity, peace and stability of Nigeria within the spirit of fairness, equity and justice which the late Premier of the Northern Region, Sir Ahmadu Bello, stood for.
