Northern Democratic Forum, NDF, has condemned the opposition by some northern youth to the zoning of the President of the Senate.

National Chairman of the Forum, Jibril Tafida after an emergency meeting held in Abuja, said the decision by the All Progressives Congress, APC to zone the Senate presidency is based on principles of fairness, justice, and equity.

He also explained that the zoning is not about who gave the party votes, but ensuring that all regions and religions are duly represented at the highest levels of government.

Tafida stressed that the decision to zone the Senate presidency is a move towards inclusiveness and should be commended by all well-meaning Nigerians. The Forum however urged Nigerians to condemn the move and called on all stakeholders to ensure that unity, justice and equity continue to govern our political processes
