2023: Adamu Garba Opposes Zoning

Presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, is against zoning the 2023 presidency.

Mr. Garba told Sheriff Quadry on Nigeria Info’s Morning Crossfire that zoning divides the country.

He thinks choosing it over competence will stop Nigeria from moving forward.

“When we zoned the presidency to the North through Yar'Adua, we saw the rise of Boko Haram that consumed nearly 30,000 lives and still consuming.

"Eventually, when we had a Niger Delta President, militancy became institutionalised; a lot of killings and oil theft.

“Now we have zoned it again to the North with President Muhammadu Buhari and then we have bandits from the same zone he comes from,” he explained.

Mr. Garba believes that all this happened due to “putting politics of identity at the centre of an ethnic and religiously diverse country like Nigeria.”

The aspirant who is from the North, and is running under the All Progressives Congress (APC), would rather Nigerians pay attention to the quality, capability, competence, and the program of action that he brings to the table.

The Crowee CEO made his presidential declaration on Katampe Mountain in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Saturday.
