Since 1999, when Nigeria returned to Democratic Rule, the North-Central is yet to produce both President and Vice-President. It will be recalled that the North-East produced Atiku Abubakar as Vice-president, while the North-west has produced Namadi Sambo and Muhammadu Buhari as Vice-president and President consecutively. Thus, Lalong may be considered for the Top Position.
