Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, on Wednesday, June 29, revealed the region that “must” produce Nigeria’s next president.
In a tweet, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftain insisted that the Southern part of the country must produce the 2023 president or nothing.
The current President of Nigeria is a 2-term Northern Presidency, thus implying that it MUST be a Southern Presidency in 2023 or NOTHING. Awa ‘South’ lo kan’. Nigerians should await details soon.

This is despite his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, fielding a northerner in the person of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as its flagbearer for the 2023 presidential election

He also added;
Some political parties have Southerners as their presidential candidates.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, has Bola Tinubu as its presidential candidate from the Southwest, while Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, hails from the Southeast.
The tweet by the former governor who had contested in the PDP presidential primary was seen by Twitter users as a hint that he may dump the PDP soon.

This is no news, we already know you’ve left the party for APC since…
You are a father of the nation. Stop causing confusion. What were you doing before and during the primary election? This is not expected of you at this crucial time for our great party, the PDP.
