Who Should Be Nigeria’s President
OpenLife Nigeria reports that as the debates on who should be Nigeria’s next President assume a wider dimension amongst stakeholders, Adamu Song, one of the experienced hands in political party management in Nigeria, has added his voice, enumerating the qualities that should define who occupies the presidential seat in 2023.
Speaking exclusively with OpenLife on Wednesday, the Adamawa State-born political tactician and experienced player in the country’s oil and gas sector stated that the next president must have a sound understanding of the arithmetic of Nigeria’s dialectic components for ease of administration.
As a firm believer in fairness and equity, the former national chairman of the Alliance For Democracy, AD, and Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA, maintained that despite the preponderance of quality presidential materials across the geo-political zones, leaders of the 18 registered political parties should zone the presidential seat to the southern part of Nigeria.
He argued that for the country to move forward, each geo-political zone should be encouraged to manage the country as a way of entrenching a sense of belonging to all.
In the southern stretch, he, however, narrowed his advocacy to the southeast saying “They deserve to be supported in the 2023 presidential contest.”
The former General Secretary of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, added that the south easterner, must as a matter of urgency, reach out to other geo-political zones for support in their quest for 2023 interests.
“It is achievable if they work very hard. But they must reach out to others. They must be cohesive in their persuasions. They must collectively put forward their best who must be sound in logic, economics, culture, human management, interpersonal relationship, balanced military knowledge and of course sound international and diplomatic relations,” he stated.
He added that “I am sure they have all this in abundance.”
On the just passed Petroleum Industry Bill, now an act, the Wakili Asibiti of Adamawa noted that leaders in the oil communities that have been earmarked for 3 percent should “Calm down,” in their grievance over what they feel as a cheat.
He stated that the 3 percent is enormous when converted to naira and kobo in view of the quantum of daily oil production and sales.
“If that money is judiciously used, it will make lots of difference in their various communities. They should see it as a starting point. It could increase subsequently,” he emphasized.
