Senator Kashim Shettima has called for power rotation between the northern and southern parts of the country.
Shettima, who is the immediate past governor of Borno State, said the presidency should shift to the South in 2023 in the spirit of fairness and justice.
Shettima made this known on Friday in Abuja during the public presentation of an autobiography by the Chairman of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund’s (TETFund) Research and Development Standing Committee, Prof. Emeritus Njidda Mamadu Gadzama.
The presentation of the book titled: “Standing For The Truth With Courage,” attracted top dignitaries including the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari, former Governor of Bauchi State, Ahmadu Muazu, among others.
Speaking at the event, Shettima, who was the chairman of the event, blamed selfish politicians for the problems rocking Nigeria.
While saying that religion and ethnicity are being used by some people to pursue their selfish agenda, Shettima called for unity and justice in the country to ensure more peaceful co-existence.
“I believe in equity, justice and fairness. After power has resided in the North for eight years, there is a need for a power shift in the South,” he said.
Shettima said Nigeria must not be allowed to implode as no country in the continent would be able to accommodate its huge population.
