Daily Trust reviews that el-Rufai made this assertion whereas talking with journalists in Kaduna on Monday.
He was reacting to the demand of southern governors who had mentioned energy should go to the south in 2023.
The governor mentioned zoning presidency is feasible however there must be an settlement between the North and the South, including that nobody has the correct to sit down in any a part of the nation to make such a request.
“We are not saying there cannot be a rotational presidency,” he mentioned.
“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.”

“Let the southerners also have eight years,” he had mentioned.
