In Nigeria, there are four cardinal points namely the North, East, West and South. Among these cardinal points, an indigene of a southwestern state named Olusegun Obasanjo had ruled the country for over eight years. Since his administration ended, the question of zoning power has always been asked. In a recent interview BBC News Pidgin Correspondent had with Nyesom Wike, the Rivers state Governor, some revelations were made about zoning of power across cardinal points in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election. These revelations were made by His Excellency Governor Nyesom Wike. He made mention of two (2) things that clearly show he supports the zoning of Presidential power come 2023.

1. The first thing Governor Nyesom Wike said that shows he supports the zoning of presidential power come 2023 is when he said, "even though it is not constitutional to zone power across cardinal points but we need to do it to foster peace and unity." Governor Nyesom Wike added that if power is fixated to a single cardinal point, it wouldn't put indigenes of other cardinal points on the same page of thoughts with those in power. Governor Nyesom Wike stressed that when power is being rotated, it gives room for new ideologies across different borders.
2. The second thing Governor Nyesom Wike said that shows he supports the zoning of presidential power come 2023 is when he noted that zoning power gives room for development of the nation. Governor Nyesom Wike believes strongly that rotation of power will help in developing many parts of each cardinal points.
Having written the two things the governor said, dear esteemed readers, do you agree that presidential power should be rotated across the four cardinal points in Nigeria? If yes, who do you think will likely be the strong presidential candidate from the Southwest and Southeast?
