Following a rumour that he is interested in joining the 2023 Presidential race, Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has stated that he doesn’t want the Nigerian presidency.
Speaking with BBC Hausa, El-Rufai described the rumour linking him to the 2023 Presidential ambition as nonsensical.
The governor further stated that the Presidency should be zoned to the south in 2023.
Reacting to the rumour that he has loved the presidency since he was a minister in the Federal Capital Territory, El-Rufai said God gives power and know whom to give it to.
He said he has never applied for the presidency of Nigeria adding that there is a rotation system in Nigerian politics which stipulated that if the north rules for eight years, the south will rule for eight years.
He said every politician in the country was aware of the system despite the fact the acceptance process was not written in the constitution.
El-Rufai added that the rotation system is why he had earlier opined that after President Buhari’s eight-years term, no northerner should run for the Presidency but instead southerners also have eight years.
