No End To Rotational Presidency – Senator Kalu

By - - [ Politics ]

Former Abia State Governor and the Senator representing Abia North district in the upper legislative chamber (Senate), Orji Uzor Kalu, has warned the northern political elites against clamouring an end to rotational presidency, insisting that the Igbo must take their turn in the number one seat (Presidency).

Kalu, who is the current Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate made his position known, Saturday, in Umuahia, while reacting to the call by the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, for an end to power shift in the country.

The Senator opined that nobody should canvass an end to power shift until the South-East and the North-East geopolitical zones had produced the President of Nigeria.

Is it by changing Presidency between the six political zone that will solve the problems in this country?

Lets hear your thoughs

That can not guarantee solution to the problem of Nigeria, but shifting of power is a nice practice, as everyone participate in governance from time to time and makes no one superior.

Even if we rotate throughout the six geopolitical zones three times, That doesn't guarantee We are going to move forward 

What we need,the type of leader we need is a leader who knows the suffering of the masses and who had vision for them and also have the fear of God in him

The problem in this country is beyond the switching. We need someone that can fixed the broken parts without complaining about who drove it to faults, someone whose agenda speaks beyond mere curroption, whose agenda knows what we need, and who intend to solve the public issues.

Well to me Nigeria needs more than a president, we need people who are selfless. It doesn't matter you ethnicity.

We need people with good character and conduct.

Not just the president but every leader should be of good moral and also to cooperate with one another for a better Nigeria

Changing president among the six political zone wont solve the problem of nigeria, the igbos os just fighting for the seat so they can use it as an opportunity to divide the country.

I think this whole issue of rotational presidency is not worth it. The best candidate available should be the president irrespective of the Geo political zone

No really, but when power did not get to all the geo political zones in the country some zone may feel cheated and neglected. I think is good for all the zones to test power in other to feel the belong too

Changing presidency between the six geopolitical zones strengthen the unity between these zones and it's what holds these regions together as one. Of it was abolished, then we might see divisions in the country.

We all are Nigerian and been a country practicing democratic system of government, we all have equal right to render services to our father land. I believe that rationing of presidency in our country will go a long way in the development and enhancing the economic growth of Nigeria. For every geopolitical zone that produce a president believe me or not such a zone will fill that impact of producing a president in term of development and other benefits.

The number one problem we have in Nigeria is bad leadership. I really don't think rotationing the position of the president among the geo-political zones would not solve our problem if we still recycle bad leaders.

Seriously, politics in Nigeria is becoming really terrible. I think we as a whole Nigeria citizens should learn to accept each other tribes and rebuke tribalism, so there won't be problem in choosing a leader.

There is a possibility things might change and there is another possibility that it wouldn't but I think every zone should be given a chance to rule if we are one Nigeria, since the history of Nigeria an igbo man hasn't ruled Nigeria....my take igbo's should be given a chance let's see whether thing will change for the best

Exactly,

Rotation of the presidential seat is seriously a great disaster to the so called democracy Nigerians are all clamoring about.

So how about the fight against corruption? Rotating of the seat is one of the biggest corruption in the history of this Nation.

This is democracy and each political zone deserve the to participate fully/equally so we can all feel sense of belonging in this country. In practice right now, it's as if it's been privatized by some zones thereby marginalizing other. The earlier this country realizes this the better for them,, else they shouldn't call this system DEMOCRACY but AUTOCRACY and the Likes.

Going from one bad egg to another dosent necessarily solve anything honestly cause any person out on seat that dosent have integrity will most likely still find a way to practice or commit crimes. I believe the answer isn’t to find someone with integrity and good values but that’s easier said than done

Its a fact that the problem of Nigeria is centred more on our system of government, the northern elites are already clamouring for power few months after the last election so zoning or not its so unfortunate that  the current political gladiators in the country doesn't even care about anything except power.
