2023: Presidency should go to South East, says Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani has warned that any attempt to deny the South East of the Presidency in 2023, will amount to laying a landmine in the country. The Senator, while addressing Journalists in Minna, over the weekend, after delivering a keynote address at a one-day youth awareness forum, “Niger Open Forum” organized by The Blue Revolutionaries (TBR), warned that doing so would amount to “simply feeding the anarchy, feeding the secession   ists, feeding the merchant of crisis in this country”.

 

He added that the north has had its fair share under President Mohammadu Buhari.

 

Accordingly, he said: “My own position is that the north has had its own fair share of leadership under President Mohammadu Buhari. Anybody who is saying power should remain in the north even after Buhari is simply laying a land mine for the destruction of our country.” Sani’s warnings may not be unconnected with recent media reports credited to the Chairman of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Mallam Shettima Yerima, that the north will still produce the presidency in 2023.

 

Although Shehu Sani said it is “too premature” to start talking about who succeeds Buhari in 2023, he reminded those with such insinuation that what keeps a nation together is equity and fairness, adding that, “we should understand that it is not simply about winning election that keeps a nation, it about being able to stabilize and balance all the forces.” He also appealed to President Mohammadu Buhari not to exclude any part of the country in his key appointment on the basis that they didn’t vote for him or for the ruling party.

 

According to him: “If you exclude the Eastern part, the South South, or even the North Central part of Nigeria because they didn’t vote for you, you are simply fuelling anarchy, feeding the secessionists, feeding the merchant of crisis in this country. “It is expected that when you win election, you are for everybody.

 

We have a pattern in this country where people are excluded and marginalized out of government on the basis that their ethnic or religious group did not vote for the government in power. That is a very dangerous thing to do. “After elections you need a country to rule. So, that is my view on that”.
