Former Senate President, Senator Ameh Ebute CON says that the 2023 presidency should be zoned to one of the three geopolitical zones that have yet to produce the president.

He identified the zones as South East, North Central and North East.

Ebute, a member of the National Caucus and Board of Trustees (BoT) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), however said that the North Central deserved to produce the president ahead of the other two.

“From what I read over the pages of newspapers, there are calls for the zoning of the Presidency to the South-East, North-Central and the North-East zone or the Presidency should be based on competence and integrity.

“My take on this issue is that the Presidency should be zoned to those zones that have never produced the President before, namely, South-East, North-Central and North-East.

“Talking in terms of the cumulative periods, the Presidency has remained in the Southern zones for 14 years (being occupied by Former Presidents Obasanjo and Jonathan) while by 2023 when Buhari completes his second term, the Presidency would have remained in the Northern zone for only 10 years, having been occupied by former President Yar’Adua and President Buhari.

“Considering other factors such as important offices held and neglect of zones, it could have been fair and just to zone the Presidency to the North-Central,” Ebute said.
