We have the population to lead Nigeria for years & We will not take 2nd class offer- Northern Elders

The Northern Elders Forum has disclosed that the Northern part of Nigeria has the population to dominate Nigeria for decades following the call by the Southerners to produce the next president of Nigeria.

The call by the southern governor’s that the 2023 presidency should be zoned to the South has generated several controversies and reactions in the country.

“Democracy requires you to vote whom you want and since we have the majority of the votes, We will lead Nigeria the way we have led Nigeria before”.

Whether we are the president or vice president, we will lead Nigeria said Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, The Northern Elders Forum spokesman.

Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the Northern Elders Forum made this statement in Zaria at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) during an inaugural edition of the Maitama Sule Leadership Lecture Series.

Why should we accept a second class offer when we can buy forms, contest, and win. It is because we inherited the leadership and we are blessed by God, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed disclosed.
