Southern governors have said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor must come from the region.
This was part of the communique they issued after their meeting in Lagos on Monday.
During the meeting, the governors also deliberated on insecurity, constitution amendment, Petroleum Industry Bill(PIB) and anti-open grazing law in all member-states.
While commending lawmakers for the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill, they opposed three per cent revenue allocation for the host communities.
“The Forum “re-affirmed their commitment to the unity of Nigeria on the pillars of equity, fairness, justice, progress and peaceful co-existence between and amongst its people.
“The Forum reiterates its commitment to the politics of equity, fairness and unanimously agrees that the presidency of Nigeria be rotated between Southern and Northern Nigeria and resolved that the next president of Nigeria should emerge from the Southern Region,” the communique said.
