Nigeria’s Next President Must Come From South-West — Akeredolu

Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has stated that Nigeria’s next president must be from the Southwest.

“We have spoken it on behalf of the people,” said Akeredolu, the Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum. The president must visit this part of the country. Governors from around the Southwest have spoken. By God’s grace, some of us feel that this country’s train must have a good ride.”

He stated that the governors in the region believed that the country’s railway must run smoothly.

He stated this during the visit of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Bola Tinubu, to delegates in the state on Thursday, ahead of the party’s presidential primary poll.

He said, “Think about Nigeria. Think about the investment over the years. Think about competence. You must look at the background of everybody, the reach and capacity. You have our good wishes as you proceed. Only God enthroned.”

He added: “Your visit is different. We must be able to accept the fact that Asiwaju has done a lot. No doubt, we have noticed that Asiwaju has crisscrossed the length and breadth of this country.

“And let us all be frank to ourselves. His reach is not something you can get easily, his reach as one of the founding fathers of our party. Many aspirants have been here, but your reach has also made it possible to have one of the special assistants to the President here. That will speak volumes.”
