Mamman Daura, a close relative of President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday opened up in an interview with BBC Hausa on the carteria for choosing the next president while stating that Nigerians should always go for competence in picking their leaders.
The 80-year-old Daura is widely believed to be the powerful man behind the throne, many claims most powerful decisions by the president are influenced by him.
The highly influential nephew of the president has suggested that Nigeria needs to consider qualified candidates regardless of the region the candidate comes from in the 2023 presidency.
He noted that Nigeria had tried rotational presidency for three consecutive times and it’s now time to focus on unity and not regions.
He said: “Rotation has been done once, twice and three times; it is important that this nation is united as one; the most qualified/competent should be elected and not someone who comes from a particular zone.”
