Afenifere replies Northern govs on Nigeria’s next President

The Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere has insisted that Nigeria’s next President should come from the Southern part of the country.

Afenifere made the remark in response to the stance by Northern governors.

The Northern Governors Forum, NGF, had said it’s unconstitutional for the Southern counterparts to insist on producing Nigeria’s next president.

It said the decision of their Southern counterpart was condemnable.

However, Afenifere, in its meeting held in Ogun State, backed the decision of the Southern governors on presidency, anti-grazing law, and Value Added Tax, VAT.

Afenifere’s stance was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of the meeting and signed by its spokesman, Jare Ajayi.

The communiqué reads partly: “The meeting also deliberated on the Resolutions of the Northern Governors that took place in Kaduna on Monday, September 27, 2021.

It is a known fact that Afenifere strongly stands by the Southern Governors in their resolution on anti-grazing laws, on Value Added Tax and on a person of Southern extraction becoming the President of Nigeria in 2023.

We note with delight, the court judgment that empowers the states to collect VAT. We urge states governments to further explore more areas to deepen democracy and enhance the frontier of true federalism in Nigeria.”
