On Monday, June 6, 2022, thirteen governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the north urged that the party’s presidential ticket must go to the south.
Following their meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, the governors talked with state house journalists.

The president has no chosen presidential candidate, according to Plateau state governor Simon Lalong, who is also the chairman of the Northern Governors Forum.

The president, according to Lalong, asked the governors to meet with the party’s national working committee (NWC) to discuss the issue of a consensus candidate.

The northern governors, he added, told the president of their resolve to guarantee that power returned to the south for the sake of national equality and harmony.

The meeting with the NWC has been set for 5 p.m. on Monday, according to the Plateau governor.

The governors had previously requested Buhari to consider southern presidential candidates while choosing the governing party’s flagbearer in the 2023 elections.

Meanwhile, pressure organisations including political figures from across the geographical zones, the South East/North Central Forum and the South West Youth Lobby Committee, have praised APC governors from the north for embracing the power shift to the south.

George Ugwuja, the convener of the South East and North Central Forum, stated yesterday that they would not hesitate to assist recognised organisations working for national cohesion and coordinated efforts to stabilise the country.

Ugwuja urged the APC’s National Working Committee and State Working Committees to prioritise the party’s interests by supporting the need for a presidential candidate of southern descent.
