Responding to question whether the insistence of the Southern Governors that the South must produce the next President will not further tear the fabric of the nation’s unity, Governor Akeredolu explained that the only way the country can remain United is to have fairness, Equality and Justice.
He stress that since the North will be spending eight years, it is only fair that the power rotation must now come to the South for justice and equality.
“The only way we remain united is that there must be fairness, equality and justice. We are saying if the North has eight years, we must have it in the south.
“When we say south, those of us Governors in the south who met in Asaba are 17. We never mentioned which area in the south. We are not segmenting south. If it goes to the southeast, we will support them.
“We have a right of association. We are discussing matters that affect our interest. We have taken our decision and we have our strategies. Part of our strategies is consultation. We don’t have to tell you,” he stressed.
