The North Central Muslim Peace Initiative (NCMPI) says a key move to restore peace in Nigeria is the emergence of the country’s president of the North-Central extraction in 2023.
NCMPI President, Saleh Mandung Zazzaga, said this on Wednesday at the group’s emergency meeting in Jos, Plateau State, held to address ethnoreligious crises, farmers-herdsmen’s clashes and other challenges in the zone.
Zazzaga called on groups, religious and private bodies to be meaningfully and uprightly involved in politics so that they could contribute to decisions and policymaking in the country.
Also, NCMPI Coordinator, Kogi State, Sani Muhammed Lokoja, said the group was partnering with non-Muslim groups and socio-cultural associations to promote peace in the zone and Nigeria at large.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that General elections will be held in Nigeria on 18 February 2023 to elect the President and Vice President. The winner of the election will be inaugurated on 29 May 2023, the former date of Democracy Day.
Since Nigeria transitioned from military to civilian rule in 1999, no one from northcentral has ever ruled.
