It is foolish to sit in Lagos or Port Harcourt and say whether northerners want it or not they must relinquish power to the south – El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has stated that Southern politicians demanding a power shift while sitting in Lagos or Port Harcourt are silly.

El-Rufai told journalists that a power transition can only happen if Southern leaders meet down with their Northern counterparts for dialogue and support.

He also stated that he is not ruling out the possibility of a rotational presidency.

El-Rufai said; 

“We are not saying there cannot be rotational presidency, it can be done but you have to come and sit with the politicians in the north and dialogue and then we agree to give our support to the south but no one has the right to sit in Lagos or Port Harcourt and say whether northerners want it or not, they must relinquish power to the south, that is wrong, it is not how we do politics and in fact, it is foolish
