Fani-Kayode has said that the presidency should be returned to the North if the Igbos are denied again. He explained that Igbos should be given the first right of refusal regarding producing Nigeria’s next President.
He noted that any discussion of a southern Presidency that does not give the Igbos the first right of refusal is deceitful.
In a series of tweets, Fani-Kayode said the North Central and Northeast have never produced a Nigerian President.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “Any talk of a Southern Presidency that does not offer the Igbo right of first refusal for the position is deceitful. And if you say no to the Igbos, which clearly both parties have done even if they don’t say it publicly, then I say let the Presidency go back to the North!
“That is why I am supporting a Northern aspirant. Southerners must learn to be fair to one another before they can expect to be treated fairly by others.
“There are two zones in the North that have not produced a democratically-elected President.
“The NC has NEVER done so & the NE produced a Prime Minister 62 years ago who was unable to finish his tenure because he was killed. Is it fair to deny them & the Igbo, who have never produced a democratically-elected President either, the right to produce the next President? “
