A former governor of the Central Bank Nigeria (CBN) and former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi III, has condemned the struggle by politicians to zone the presidency to a particular part of the country.
He lamented that such zoning methods, instead of focusing on interested individuals usually turns out producing what he said are ‘useless candidates’ vying for the presidency.
He spoke on Friday during an interview on Arise TV.
Sanusi stated that Nigerians should clamour for a system that would strengthen the electoral process, like electronic transmission of results, even as he wondered why the National Assembly killed the bill.
He said Nigerians should be more concerned about issues holding down the country, and who can solve them, rather than where the president should come from.
