As the 2023 presidential election draws nearer, many interest groups are beginning to push their political agenda. They have continued to assert that the North will rule Nigeria for the next four years.
In our today’s political report, we will be looking at a comment made by the Northern Consensus movement concerning the 2023 presidency.
The Northern Consensus Movement has expressed its desire to lead Nigeria once again. According to a video posted by Femi Fani Kayode today, the president of the group, Awwal Abdullahi Aliyu asserted that the North will rule Nigeria for the next 4 years. Abdullah explained that the North still has four years to stay in office. According to him, Nigeria has a total population of two hundred and twenty million persons out of which North has one hundred and sixty million (160,000000).
He however urged Northerners to pick up their voters cards and vote massively for Northerners in the 2023 elections. He said, “I don’t see how 70,000000 million will beat 160,000000 million. We are ready for it, we believe in democracy. We are democratic in nature, we know politics is a game of numbers. We will elect another Northern president by February 2023. We will elect a fresh Northern president that will balance the remaining four years that North has”, he said.
This post has attracted a lot of attention as many people are reacting to it. The majority argued that the Northern group is daring the Southerners. They however called on Nigerians to vote massively for Southern president come 2023.
