Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state has waded into the controversy surrounding the zoning of 2023 presidency.
Appearing on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Fayemi noted that he understands why those who feel marginalized are clamoring for a Southeast Presidency come 2023.
Insisting that there is no reason why candidates from all parts of Nigeria will not partake in the primaries when the stage is set in 2023, the Ekiti state Governor averred that “excellent Nigerians come from all parts of Nigeria and there is no place where qualified and purpose-driven leaders cannot be found.”
“In a country that is multicultural, multireligious and multiethnic, one of the equilibrating mechanisms is to ensure that those in leadership represent the mosaic that the country is.
“I am not an advocate of zoning…I’m also of the view that excellent Nigerians come from all parts of the country.”
