The state Governor of Yobe, Yahaya Bello has insisted that Nigeria has been practicing a rotational presidency since 1999.
In his word, Nigeria needs a patriotic and credible leader to fix the insecurity challenges affecting the country.
Bello said this after he met with President Muhammadu Buhari in a closed-door meeting on Thursday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
While briefing the media after meeting with President Buhari, Governor Bello said the position of the president should not be determined by zoning but by sincerity and competence.
His word partly read, “For once, let’s get Nigeria fixed. We have practiced a seeming rotational presidency since 1999 to date, let us evaluate our successes or achievements from this seeming rotational presidency between then, and now.
“Why don’t we simply go for the best? After all, we copy this democracy from America and some of the developed world, how many of these countries are practicing rotational presidency? You see, we are where we are today, not because we are practicing rotational presidency.
“If you want to go by that rotational presidency, then do perfect zoning. Go by perfect rotation. And if you go by rotation and whichever way you come from, I don’t think you should exclude where I come from. That’s number one.
“Number two, let us get a credible, sincere, patriotic Nigerian to fix it.”
