Heaven will not fall if another northerner takes over power from Buhari - Hakeem Baba-Ahmed

According to the Spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, he said that heaven will not fall if another northerner is elected the next president of Nigeria come 2023.

Saying that the northerners are not second-class citizens, he said the north will not accept to serve as a second fiddle in the 2023 presidential election, when the region has the population to go to clinch the first position.

According to him, “The North is not for sale and northerners will surprise those waiting for them to queue up in the 2023 presidential election and be given money in exchange for their votes.”

He added that any person who does not want a northerner as President should leave the country if one emerges.

The spokesman also urged the students to be proud of who they are, challenging them not to accept being treated as second-class citizens in their own nation.
