OPINION : Why Nigerians Should Give The North Another 8 Years To Rule With Gov. Zulum As President

The 2023 general election is fast approaching, various political parties are making frantic efforts to winning the presidential elections. The two main political parties, the All Progressive Congress and the People's Democratic Party are making underground political calculations and permutations in order to provide a suitable candidate that will be accepted by majority of Nigerians. 

The two main political parties are considering zoning the presidential ticket to the South region of Nigeria. The incumbent President, Mohammadu Buhari who is from the Northern region of Nigeria is currently serving his second term in office and will not be opportuned to contest in 2023.

Stakeholders, leaders and politicians from the South East region of Nigeria are claiming that they have been sidelined and marginalised for long in the affairs of the country since the country got her independence in the year 1960.

But looking at the current situation in the country, I believe what the country needs now is a qualified leader that can solve the arrays of problems facing the country especially the insecurity bedevilling our dear country, Nigeria and zoning the presidential candidate to a particular region should be the least of our problems. 

The only competent and most qualified politician that can take this country to the promised land is no other person than the incumbent Executive Governor of Borno state, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum.

The Professor of Soil and Water Engineering is undoubtedly one of the most performing Governor in the political history of Nigeria. 

Stated below, are some of the reasons why I believe the North should continue ruling the country under the leadership of Professor Babagana Umara Zulum from Borno state, North East region of Nigeria. 

The Security challenges in the Country needs a Northerner to handle :

According to the late music maestro, Bob Nesta Marley, he once stated that 'He who feels it knows it all'. The security challenges in the country can only be solved by someone who truly understand the security situation of Northern region. 

Babagana Umara Zulum knows the security challenges facing the country like the back of his palm. A very vibrant and result-oriented goalsetter like Babagana Umara Zulum is the only one that can solve the insecurity bedevilling the region.

He has been making progress in tackling the Boko Haram and banditry menace in his state even though he is not in charge of the Armed Forces and military apparatus. 

If Babagana Umara Zulum is given the chance to become the next President of Nigeria in 2023 and with access to funding and federal might, the issue of Boko Haram insurgency and kidnapping will be a thing of the past in Nigeria. 

His Past and present achievements as Governor of Borno state :

Governor Babagana Zulum is indeed one of the most performing and decorated Governor in Nigeria. Since he won the Borno state gubernatorial election in 2019, he has performed his duties diligently.

He has since built expansive and well equipped schools and hospitals,gave out food and palliatives to the needy in the society and the refugees in the IDPs camp.

He also brought good governance to the people of Borno state and he is known by the people as the architect of modern Borno state even though he is facing the security challenges which is a bane to the progress achieved so far. 

Babagana Umara Zulum is a detribalised Nigerian who loves people from other tribes and regions :

Babagana Zulum is one of the few politicians and leaders in the Northern region of Nigeria who does not speak evil of people from other regions and tribes. 

Since he assumed office as Governor, he has motivated numerous non-indigenes of the state and gave cash donations for their diligence and selfless service to the state. Early last year, he appointed two non-indigene, from Oyo and Anambra state into his cabinet. 

Babagana Umara Zulum will surely do more if he is given opportunity to succeed President Mohammadu Buhari and he will not be selective and tribalistic in his appointments.

By now, I believe you are now convinced that Professor Babagana Umara Zulum who hails from Mafa Local Government Area of Borno State is the best candidate for 2023 presidential election and the hope for a better Nigeria.
