Former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has disclosed that the southern region should normally produce the next president of Nigeria in 2023.
The former president reportedly said this at his Hilltop Home in Abeokuta on Wednesday while meeting with the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
According to PM News, Obasanjo insisted that it should be the turn of the south to produce Nigeria’s next president.
The platform however didn’t name its source which it claimed was privy to the meeting between Obasanjo and Tinubu.
Obasanjo was quoted to have said: “I am very much aware that it’s the turn of the South to produce the next President of Nigeria. I was part of the meeting when the agreement was made between Northern and Southern leaders.
He added that it would be an injustice for the north to retain power after eight years of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“It will be an injustice to the South if the North retains power after eight years of rule. We will do the right thing when the time comes.”
