APC chair: Sheriff visits Umahi, Ebonyi gov demands rotational Presidency


EBONYI State Governor, David Umahi, has said rotating the Presidency between the North and the South would be a better political arrangement for Nigeria.

Umahi said this while receiving former Borno State Governor, Ali Modu-Sheriff, during a courtesy call at the Old Government House, Abakaliki, on Wednesday.

According to him, the North-South arrangement would entrench justice, equity and fairness in the nation’s political space.

Umahi, also endorsed Sheriff for the position of National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress.

While describing the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), as a man after his heart, Umahi said, “I have no regrets saying that Mr President is a man with a good heart. He is a man that is conscious of his integrity. I have no apologies.

“The presidency should rotate between North and South. We must be able to bring peace for us and our children.

“Everybody has become wiser. Let us be entrenched in the path of justice, equity and fairness.

“Ali Modu Sheriff is a man that is accessible and humble to the core. Since he left PDP, my mind left the party. When we betray people, it is a seed we are sewing that will germinate after some time.

“We are determined to change the narratives of the State. If I were the leader of the party, I will declare you unopposed. You are my choice. Our prayers are with you.”

Earlier, Sheriff said, “We have been driving on concrete roads on our way to Ebonyi State Government House. The way and manner you stir the ship of the State, you have passed 85 percent of all the indices of governance.”
