Zulum calls for power shift to South in 2023

BORNO State governor, Babagana Zulum, has called for a power shift to Southern Nigeria in the next administration. 

Governor Zulum stated this on Thursday while delivering a lecture on security and economic growth at a book launch by former Director-General of NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside, titled, ‘Strategic Turnaround’. 

He urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to heed his advice and keep to previous agreements made to shift power to the southern part of the country in the next administration. 

The governor blamed poor handling of the Boko Haram insurgency in the early years and corruption of government officials for the insecurity in the country. 

He added that the mistake Nigeria made that has led to the banditry in the country was to ignore the neighbouring countries. 

He claimed that “if Nigeria had emulated some European countries and empowered their poorer neighbours, the situation would have been mitigated.” 

According to the governor, military interventions and even national restructuring cannot stop the crisis, as he called for strategic leadership and social re-orientation to end insecurity in the country.
