Presidency must return to South —Akeredolu

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, yesterday, insisted that for equality and fairness, Nigeria’s next president must come from the Southern part of the country.

Akeredolu, who said this in Akure, declared that for Nigeria to survive “there is a need to rotate the Presidency for equality and fairness.”

He spoke at a service held at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Region 22, Akure, to commemorate the 2023 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration.

The governor said that the celebration was marked to rekindle interest in the affairs of the families, dependants and relations of Nigerians who lost their lives in wars and peacekeeping operations across the globe.

His words: “I am equally mindful of the fact that several security challenges have claimed the lives of many of our great officers and soldiers.

“Indeed, the selfless services of our men in this noble profession, to ensuring national cohesion and global peace cannot be quantified.

“The annual Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration is, therefore, to honour our departed war heroes and veterans and appreciate those still alive, particularly those that had suffered various deprivations in the cause of their duties and operations.
