The presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said that President Buhari’s nephew, Alhaji Mamam Daura was quoted out of context in his publicized position over the 2023 presidential candidate.

“In an attempt to circulate the content of the interview to a wider audience, the English translation clearly did no justice to the interview, which was granted in Hausa, and as a result, the context was mixed up and new meanings were introduced and/or not properly articulated,” Mr Garba said.

Daura, in an interview with BBC Hausa Network, called for competence to be adopted as the criteria for chosing a Presidential Candidate in 2023 instead of zoning as canvased by many politicians from Southern Nigeria.

 

This position did not sit well with the people of the region who believe that power should rotate to the South after eight years of Buhari’s Northern Presidency

The people of the southeast have recently resumed calls for the president of the southeast extraction as the zone remains the only zone in the south that has not produced a president since the return of democracy in 1999.
