Northern Elders Forum Reveals Why North Will Continue To Control And Rule Nigeria

Northern Elders Forum Reveals Why North Will Continue To Control And Rule Nigeria—-The Genius Media Nigeria reports that the Northern Elders Forum has said that Northern Nigeria will continue to ‘rule’ Nigeria because they have the numbers and majority of the vote.

This was made known by the Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the NEF, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, while speaking at the  Maitama Sule Lecture Series organized by the students’ wing of the Coalition of Northern Groups, held at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, on Saturday.

“We will lead Nigeria the way we have led Nigeria before whether we are President or Vice President, we will lead Nigeria. We have the majority of the votes and democracy says vote whom you want. Why should we accept a second class position when we know we can buy a form and contest for first class and we will win?”

“Why does anybody need to threaten us and intimidate us? We will get that power but be humble because power comes from God. We inherited leadership and being honest is not being stupid.”

“The North has pride; we are humble enough to know that we are going to run Nigeria with other people but we are not going to pay a second fiddle to anybody. We may not have the most robust economy, there are people who are trying to strangulate us even more than we are being strangled.”

His statements are coming amidst strong debates about the Nation’s rotational leadership arrangement between the North and South.

He also revealed that the Northern Economy will be rebuilt adding that the region is not ‘for sale’.
