The lawmaker representing Borno South senatorial district, Ali Ndume, has disclosed that the All Progressives Congress had an agreement on zoning in 2015.
According to Ndume, the agreement was not written in 2015, it was followed that the North should produce the president.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Army while reacting to the plan by the ruling party to jettison zoning said, it would be unfair, injustice and betrayal of trust and gentleman agreement if APC zones its ticket to the North.
According to Ndume, for fairness, justice and equity, the ruling APC should zone the 2023 Presidency to the South.
He, however, stated that he is not against anyone contesting from the North as it is their constitutional right.
Ndume said, “That will be unfair, injustice and almost a betrayal of trust and a gentleman man agreement.
“We had an agreement, though not written in 2015 that the North should produce the President. That was why all the presidential aspirants were from the North: Atiku, Nda Isaiah, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Muhammadu Buhari, all contested.
“Only Rochas Okorocha just participated because he already had the governorship ticket in his pocket. He just participated for the sake of it because Buhari even won in Imo State.
“That was why no aspirants contested from South West, South-South and South East. I believe in justice; I am not against anybody from the North contesting, it is their constitutional right.”
