Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has said that there is a covenant between members of the All Progressives Congress that power should shift to the South in 2023.

He said this on Thursday while speaking at the presentation of a book by a former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Dakuku Perterside, on Thursday.

According to him, restructuring, state police and devolution of powers would not solve Nigeria’s problem.

The governor also noted that there was a need to give Nigerians a sense of belonging in leadership.

Zulum said, “The issue of power rotation is a covenant between us hence the need to shift the power to the south.

“I have advocated for power to shift to the South and I will continue to do so. Nobody should say that I am saying this because I am looking for the position of vice president; I don’t have an interest.

“I don’t have an interest in becoming the president or the vice president now. Let the Southerners compete among themselves – be it South-South or South-East or South-West.

“This is something we need to do.”

He also called for a holistic approach to tackle the insecurity challenges faced in the country.

Zulum said, “There must be a clear demarcation between competency and loyalty and our leaders must be chosen based on performance.

“I would advocate as a starting point that good governance is the heart and soul of security and development. Bad governance will spread insecurity and destroy the possibility of development as trust is broken between the elected and the electorate.

“A weak system breeds corruption and in order to survive, people will try whatever means to circumvent due processes and over time this will lead to insecurity.

“The search for alternative means of survival that is not legal constitutes insecurity.”
