Northern Advocates For Good Governance (NAFGG), a polical pressure group has urged polical parties to ensure that competence, experience and capacity become the criteria in choosing or zoning 2023 presidential ticket.
Mr Mahmoud Katun, the National Coordinator of the group gave the advice while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday. He advised that all zones in the country be allowed to seek the presidential position.
The National Coordinator was of the opinion that political parties considerations should be based on competence, experience and capacity in choosing or zoning their presidential ticket.
According to him, “Nobody has the right to exclude any segment of this country from aspiring to the highest office in the land, especially segments of the North that have never had the opportunity of occupying the prime position.”
He said those propagating the southern agenda were doing so for self-interest, disguised as rotational presidency.
He opined that where the political parties wish to zone their presidential tickets, the North-East and North-Central should be considered because those two zones have not produced presidents in the country.
It called on political actors in the country, across party divides, to look deeply and evolve measures to address the issue of zoning to produce competent candidates.
He assured that the group would present a communiqué to all political parties stating its concerns on the issue of zoning as it concerns the presidency in 2023.
