Northers will benefit more if southerner becomes president – Senator Ali Ndume

Senator Ali Ndume has canvassed for the emergence of a Southerner as President come 2023, saying that the northern region will benefit more if a southerner becomes president.

While speaking on Channels TV on Tuesday May 3, Senator Ndume said the next president of the country should come from the south in the spirit of justice and fairness.

He added that the northern part of the country benefitted more during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, who hails from the South.

“Personally, I feel we will be better off with the president coming from the south. The current president comes from the north and if you look at it analytically, the south benefitted more. If the president comes from the south, we will benefit more just as we did previously during Jonathan’s administration,” he said.

It pays the north more if there is a southern president. It pays the south when there is a northern president. When Buhari was appointed, the south benefitted more. They have the vice-president and the vice-president is so powerful, because the president at one time handed over the country to him when he left – that was unprecedented.

The vice-president and speaker of the house of representatives are from the south-west. From the south, there are more than five strategic ministers — the minister of finance was from the south-west until the south-west pushed her out, because it was the media hype that pushed her out because of the trivial matter of NYSC certificate.

Then, we have the ministers of works, health and state for health from the south. Another important ministry is the petroleum ministry — the president is the minister, and the minister of state is from south-south.

In terms of infrastructure, the south benefitted more because the second Niger bridge will be completed very soon. East-west road will be completed. The deep blue sea project is in the south. The Lagos-Ibadan rail was started and commissioned. The Lagos-Ibadan expressway is also going on smoothly. So many projects in the south. Without fear of any contradiction, we will benefit more if the president comes from the south.”
