According to the source, the governors contend that if the race is not thrown open it should be swung in favour of the North-West which gave the President-elect votes in the just concluded presidential election.

The source said, “Some northern governors are not in support of the planned zoning and believe that the race should be thrown open just as the APC did in the build-up to the presidential primary that produced Tinubu.

“In fact, they contend that if that option cannot be explored, the pendulum should be allowed to swing in favour of the North-West. They hinged their conviction on the fact that it was actually the bulk of votes from the region that gave Tinubu victory.”
