Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has slammed the Southern politicians for demanding for power shift whiles sitting comfortably in their homes.

According to him it is foolish for the people to sit in Lagos and Port Harcourt and say power must be relinquished to the south.

Speaking in a media briefing, El-Rufai noted that a dialogue with the Northerners is necessary and should be the way to go.

He, however, stated that he is not against zoning the presidency.

“We are not saying there cannot be rotational presidency, it can be done but you have to come and sit with the politicians in the north and dialogue and then we agree to give our support to the south but no one has the right to sit in Lagos or Port Harcourt and say whether northerners want it or not, they must relinquish power to the south, that is wrong, it is not how we do politics and in fact, it is foolish,” El-Rufai said.
