Kwararafa Youth Volunteer Force ,KYVF, has said the North Eastern part of the country deserves to produce the next President of the country as it has not occupied the office both during the military and democratic dispensations since the creation of the country.

The group described as unjust a situation where the North East that parades array of competent professionals in almost all fields of human endeavour who have contributed no small measure to the development of Nigeria has never been found worthy to produce a President after over 56 years of the country’s existence.

“All regions of this country have produced a president at one time or the other either as a military or democratically elected. Yet others have produced both military and civilian leaving out the North East that has not been given its fair share despite its contribution to nation building for over 56 years of Nigeria’s existence.

” At a time the region has been ravaged by terrorists activities and all including the international community are in agreement that special attention need to be paid to rebuilding the region as it is the right time a citizen from that zone occupies the top sit.
