2023 Politics: Coalition says Mamman Daura qualifies to speak as a statesman


A civil society group under the aegis of Coalition for Nigeria has expressed support to the comment made on the 2023 presidency by President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, describing him as an elder statesman who has rights to speak on the future of Nigeria.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, the President of the Coalition Patriot Ode expressed total support for the veteran journalist’s vision for a new Nigeria. 

Daura had in a recent interview aired by BBC Hausa Service dismissed the issue of zoning and rotation of the nation’s presidency.

The group added that Daura’s preference for competence over parochial considerations should be applauded, especially as he did not in any way favour any region or zone. 

The Coalition, however, advised the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and others that it is high time the country moves away from parochial sentiments and submit to the dynamics of modern time.
