2023: Power Should Rotate To Southern Nigeria – Bayelsa Governor Tells Visiting Ex-Vice President, Atiku

Diri spoke on Friday when former Vice President and a PDP presidential aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, visited him at the Government House, Yenagoa.

The Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, has said he is a strong proponent of zoning and rotation of the presidency in 2023 to the South of the country.
Diri spoke on Friday when former Vice President and a PDP presidential aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, visited him at the Government House, Yenagoa.

According to a press release, the governor noted that no individual political ambition should be allowed to disorganise and disorientate the party.

The governor said, “I am one of the strong proponents of power rotation and zoning and I still believe that power should rotate to the southern part of Nigeria.

"However, our party has taken a decision and there is nobody that is greater than the party. As a party member, I cannot stand above our party. I am carefully choosing my words as an umpire because I am holding a very sensitive position as deputy chairman of one of the electoral committees."

Diri, who described Atiku as one of the strong contenders for the party’s presidential ticket, noted that the PDP was more interested in wresting political power from what he described as “the rudderless, directionless and failed government of the All Progressives Congress."

Speaking earlier, Atiku stressed that the PDP must put its best candidate forward in order to wrest power back from the APC.

The former vice president called on the party to brace up and be united for the sake of Nigeria, emphasising that the PDP could not afford to be in the opposition again from 2023.

Atiku said, “We must put our best forward. Meaning who we believe can bring us back to power. It is very important. We must brace up as a political party. We must unite to return our political party back to power. We cannot afford to be in opposition again.
“There must be peace and unity before this country can be governed. That is why I emphasise unity and the need to unify the country. What I mean is that; I am going to give every part, every section, religion and faith, a sense of belonging in this country.”

Power should go to the SE to give them a sense of belonging. Otherwise, it may make them feel entrapped in a system that doesn't push or promote their advantages in any way

16 years in power, not even the position of Vice President was given to one of their politicians from the East.

What manner of party.
What manner of people.

But it is APC that is in power for less than 2 tenure that is their problem.

Nigerian youths, it is time we shed our cultural, ethnic and religious differences to pick a President that can help move this country forward. I believe Peter Obi can lead us forward.

Tell him to his face instead of selling ur concience for some few dollar bills. Atiku should just put aside his ambition in the spirit of fair play and let someone for the south fly the parties flag.

Entitlement mentality approach to acquisition of political power has no place in Nigeria. Let the best from anywhere emerge. Build bridges. Initiate and have handshakes across the Niger and the Benue Rivers. Power, is not served a la carte. It is taken!!!

Truth be told, this is not politics. It is only a recycling of power from north to west. This has affected us so deeply and we are not able to produce a reputable candidate because of favoritism.

The worst thing to ever happen to Nigeria right now is to vote in Tinubu. Another sick man in power for 8 hears will be unbearable a thing for innocent citizens on this country.

Did anyone say you dont belong? Why must it be SE? So Nigeria should start zoning among the 6 zones...right? How will Nigeria go forward?

SE - you have ruled one time. Nnamdi Azikiwe
SS - 1 time. Jonathan Goodluck
SW - 1 time. Olusegun Obasanjo.

Where is the marginalization? How? Na greediness dey worry you. You started war in the 60s when other southern regions have not tasted the seat because you always want to rule. And you have been shouting this. Why cant you compete like others? The game is called competition. You cannot belong to where you get free votes. Campaign and try to win. If you know you cannot win, turn yourself to a minority and join another region to make a larger number. You can't be a majority and still want to get there unopposed. Join another region. Shikena
