Whereas talking on Channels TV on Tuesday Might 3, Senator Ndume mentioned the following president of the nation ought to come from the south within the spirit of justice and equity.

He added that the northern a part of the nation benefitted extra through the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, who hails from the South.

“Personally, I really feel we can be higher off with the president coming from the south. The present president comes from the north and in case you have a look at it analytically, the south benefitted extra. If the president comes from the south, we’ll profit extra simply as we did beforehand throughout Jonathan’s administration,” he mentioned.

It pays the north extra if there’s a southern president. It pays the south when there’s a northern president. When Buhari was appointed, the south benefitted extra. They’ve the vice-president and the vice-president is so highly effective, as a result of the president at one time handed over the nation to him when he left – that was unprecedented.

The vice-president and speaker of the home of representatives are from the south-west. From the south, there are greater than 5 strategic ministers — the minister of finance was from the south-west till the south-west pushed her out, as a result of it was the media hype that pushed her out due to the trivial matter of NYSC certificates.

Then, we now have the ministers of works, well being and state for well being from the south. One other essential ministry is the petroleum ministry — the president is the minister, and the minister of state is from south-south.

By way of infrastructure, the south benefitted extra as a result of the second Niger bridge can be accomplished very quickly. East-west street can be accomplished. The deep blue sea undertaking is within the south. The Lagos-Ibadan rail was began and commissioned. The Lagos-Ibadan expressway can also be happening easily. So many initiatives within the south. With out concern of any contradiction, we’ll profit extra if the president comes from the south.”
