Babagana Zulum who is the current executive Governor of Borno State and served as Guest Lecturer at the Dakuku Peterside Book Launch in Abuja recently, subtly disclosed how the north allied to halt past President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), from being re-elected for a 2nd term in 2015. Some stakeholders in the government have conveyed their feelings that Governor Zulum’s exposure further uncovered that former President Goodluck Jonathan may not have failed the presidential election at the polls but may have been deterred from the second-tenure success because of the ruling of some northern authorities that power should change direction to the north in 2015.
The amiable Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum had at the booked takeoff hosted by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, submitted his notion for power transition to the south after the second term of eight years of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023. Zulum attempted to rationalize his argument for moving the president to the south after Buhari's second tenure with the acknowledgment that the north agreed that after eight years of the decimated term of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, which was finished by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, power should change course to the north. He expanded that now that the north will be completing eight years of two regimes under President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, power should move to the south.

Zulum said: “In 2015 after 8 years, of the PDP dual phase of the presidency, we concluded that power should change course to the north. “Now, power should change direction to the south in 2023, as President Buhari finalizes eight years for the north. Allow the south to compete amongst themselves. I am not enthusiastic about the president; I am not curious about the vice president; power should move to the south for equity.”
However, the 2015 presidential elections provoked disagreements and obvious shortcomings, past President Goodluck Jonathan suppressed the enticement of the power of incumbency to thwart the outcome of the election he, to the amazement of numerous Nigerians and world leaders, accepted the outcome straight before the declaration of the ultimate result, called Muhammadu Buhari on the telephone to felicitate him, and aided the soft handover of power. Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan also ignored tensions to dispute the election outcome at the tribunal.
Since the departure of Jonathan, several political players have at various times apologized for working against the ex-president, some have admitted guilt to the past president for betrayal. What do you have to say?.
