2023: It is the turn of Cross Rivers

We wish to align with the position of the Arewa Mandate Initiative (AMI), on power shift to the south in 2023, with the proviso that it should be the turn of the Cross Rivers people to occupy that office. 

We the youths commend the AMI, for its fair-mindedness and urge all lovers of equity justice and fair play to support the power shift to the south.  

However, power shift to the south would only achieve the intended purpose of strengthening the bonds of friendship and national unity if it is ceded to Cross Rivers, which has the largest concentration of other Nigerians, particularly from the North, many of whom have lived all their lives in various communities in peace and harmony with their hosts without any problems. 

The people of Cross Rivers are the most friendly and accommodating to other Nigerians irrespective of tribe and religion, and for which reason, their state and communities are the most peaceful in the country. 

We also wish to cite instances of long-standing inter- marriages between Cross Riverians and other ethnic groups from the north and south of the country as another example of the spirit of love and accommodation by the people of Cross Rivers to all Nigerians. 

The average Cross Rivers man sees Nigeria from the prism of a united and indivisible country, with a firm belief that its people are tied together by a common destiny.  

We, therefore, appeal to the entire APC family in the south to rally round Cross Rivers State in its quest to produce the next president of Nigeria in 2023.
