THE North Central Peoples Forum on Wednesday declared support for the position of the Northern State Governors that the Presidency should be left open for every region to contest.

The organization said Nigeria was facing a political crisis which requires an individual from the North Central zone to resolve.

Director-General and Publicity Secretary of the NCPF, Audu Sule, said this during a press conference in Abuja.

He said, “We are watching the present polity in Nigeria because we are always the saviour of the country when there is a crisis.

“We are in the middle of Nigeria having borders with every part of the country, including Cameroon and if there is no peace in the North- Central region, Nigeria will not be at peace.

“Yes, North-Central has produced many Heads of State but we have not produced a civilian President, nor a Vice President. General Yakubu Gowon (retd.), brought unity to Nigeria, while Abdulsalami Abubakar ensured that Nigeria returned to democracy.

“These are people from the North-Central that have remained bridge- builders. Whatever assignment you give a North-Central person; be him a Christian or a Muslim, the North-Central has it in abundance.

“We are a peace- loving people and if Nigeria needs peace, the North-Central will bring peace as it happened during the civil war when Gowon stabilised the country.”
