2023:Sen Adamu's Opposition To Zoning Should Be A Message To Umahi Who Is Expecting A Miracle-Sen Sani
It was recently reported that the former governor of Nasarawa State and the senator representing Nasarawa West Senatorial District, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, made it clear that it is waste of time for some people to think that the All Progressives Congress, APC will zone its presidential ticket to the south in 2023.
The insistence of northern leaders that power can't rotated could actually be explained. The leaders would be worried about allowing a southern politician to take over from the president. There are two cogent and convincing reasons the leaders would be concerned about leaving power to south. The second and last tenure of Muhammadu Buhari expires soon and he won't be up for another term.
Two top politicians in the southern region are apparently concerned about how things are moving ahead of the 2023 elections. They have given warnings specifically about the presidential election and it would be better if the country listens to their warning in order to avoid the dangers attached to it.

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, a former governor of Nasarawa state, has told those agitating for the power shift to the southern part of the country in 2023 to bury their thought.

Barring any form of changes to the arrangement, the governors elected on the platform of the PDP would meet next week to deliberate on the issue of zoning of the 2023 presidency. But the governors would be divided based on their personal and regional interest and they may not be able to agree on the subject.
