In 2023, Power Should Move to The South East Region Of The Country_ Balarabe Musa.

For the sake of peace, justice and national unity , the Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Abulkadir Balarabe Musa( second republic gov.) has suggested that the people of the southeast region should be given power to rule the country after the 2023 Election.

The formal Governor, saying that the presidency should move to the southeast region, said it in a very clamouring way, in order to promote national unity and justice in the country.

Mr Issa Aremu,Labour leader and former governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Kwara State,reacting to the suggestion of Alhaji Abulkadir Balarabe Musa, said that the shifting of the presidency should be made according to the provision of the Constitution, since the Constitution has already provided how the president can be produced.

The Labor leader futher said that"the consideration of the place where the president of the country should be produced from is not supposed to be made by geographical location, religion bound,  gender bound, region limit or state limit", every qualified citizen  irrespective of his state, local government, religion and gender is entitled to contest for any office in the country or state since he or she is willing to contest.
