How People Like Me Reason Whenever We Hear "Zoning". by Casham: 5:31pm On Apr 19, 2021
For people like me, "zoning" the presidency means nothing. By people like me, I mean, those who seem to not belong anywhere. Those of us from Southern Kaduna, Bauchi and even Kebbi, Taraba and Benue; countless minorities. We are considered "North" by every one else, but we know we do not 'belong'. So for us, it doesn't matter where the presidency is 'zoned' to. It is obvious the discussion is never about competence or or qualification. It has always been about 'belonging'. Since we belong nowhere, most of us have lost faith in the system.
For me though I personally believe the Igbos deserve a shot. But 'power is not handed on a platter'. They deserve it means they should 'fight' for it. Somehow, I feel an Igbo presidency will mean the end of Nigeria. The first 'president' of a Nigeria, Nnamdi Azikiwe (the only real leader this country ever had), was Igbo, the last should also be Igbo. Poetic huh? I am very ok with that. But this is politics. This is Nigeria. The power is not always with the people.
