He said, “As the chairman of the North Central Governors Forum, I have called a meeting of the governors and we agreed that we should not be left out. There are many aspirants from North west and North-east.”

He said they are going ahead with rotation of positions , adding that those allocated to the North would move to south while those in the south would move to north.

He said, “Yes we have already agreed to go for the office of national chairman, but it is not in my place to say who would get it or not.”

He added that if the position is eventually allocated to the zone, the governors would meet with stakeholders to decide the best candidate to occupy it.

He argued that in the past few years, the zone has not been favoured in national positions despite having highest votes elections.
