2023: For Equity, Justice, Power Must Shift To South, Says Ex-Borno gov, Shettima
A former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, has called for a power shift to the southern part of Nigeria in 2023.
Shettima made the call in Abuja on Friday at the public presentation of the book titled ‘Standing for the Truth with Courage.’ The book was written by Prof. Emeritus Njidda Gadzama, who is the Chairman of the TETfund Research and Development Standing Committee.
The former governor, stressing that the hope of the country rested on the mindset of its people, said the problem was not religion or ethnicity but people using it to achieve their goals, the News Agency of Nigeria reported.
“I believe in equity, justice, and fairness. After power has resided in the North for eight years, there is the need for a power shift in the South,” he said.
Shettima said there was a need for the country to inculcate the culture of writing books to enhance the academic performance of students.
