The Executive Governor of Adamawa State Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has said that the election of a president from the North East will bring and to the insecurity and banditry being experienced in different parts of the country.
However, in my opinion Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri may be wrong in his claim that the election of a president from the North East of Nigeria will bring an end to the insurgency witnessed in the whole country.
Although the North-Eastern states namely: Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba, and Yobe are seriously hit by insurgency, they are not the only state plundered by bandits.
Some other parts of the country have been suffering from marginalization, for instance, the South East hasn't produced any president yet and most of the crisis erupting there is as a result of marginalization.
The North produced the current president, it will be fair to allow the South to produce the next president. President Muhammadu Buhari is from the northwest geopolitical zone of Nigeria.
Finally, every part of the has men and women that can pilot the affairs of the country. So presidency should not be limited to one geopolitical zone in the country.
