Ayo Adebanjo: If based on merit, only South- East will Produce Presidents



Afenifere leader, Ayo Adebanjo has said  if the zoning of the presidency is based on “merit”, only candidates from the south-east will hold the office “till thy kingdom come”.

Adebanjo said this on Monday in his remarks at the Greater Nigeria Conference organised by the Nzuko Nmunna, an Igbo think-tank.

According to him, it’s the turn of the south-east to produce the president in the interest of fairness and equity.

He said, “In 2014, when they were campaigning for Buhari, he said it was the turn of the north, and when we heard it, we heard it for keeps

When it is now the turn of the south and the south-east, they’re now propounding a new theory — the question of merit. If it was the question of merit, till thy kingdom come, the east alone will produce president.

“I am saying all these to tell you that the question of lobbying, campaigning is rigmarole. They know the truth.

“For the fact that they’re saying you have no people, I’m happy you have demonstrated that you do. But you must go and unite. You must be united. A house divided against itself will not stand.”
