2023: North May Be In Power for 100 Years – Prof Ango Abdullahi

The Chairman of Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Prof. Ango Abdullahi has said that Northern Nigerian may remain in power for the next 100 years and it is an illusion to create a new Nigeria without the Hausa/Fulani.

Abdullahi stated this during an interview with Daily Sun in Zaria.

Speaking on the reason NEF supported the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party 9PDP), Atiku Abubakar against the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, he said in the last four years by the group’s honest assessment, Buhari did not perform to a level that he should be re-elected.

“That was our last recommendation before the elections. So, we waited for the outcome of the elections and every Nigerian today knows the result. Obviously, I commented on the outcome of the elections and other forums from south recommended that Atiku should challenge the result at the Tribunal and the Court especially because of the fact that it was quite apparent that the election was not free and fair or credible election.

Abdullahi who further pointed that 81% of Buhari votes in 2015 and 2019 came from the North said there is nothing wrong at all if the north keeps power for a century because democracy is all about numbers and they have it.

“You see, the North is the most liberal voting block in Nigerian political history. For instance, Abiola defeated Bashir Tofa in Kano and other parts of the North in the 1993 presidential elections.

“This liberal attitude of northerners in the political environment made it possible to prepare the ground for a democratic system to have a foundation and solidify. I don’t think there is any public debate as to whether the north will vote in one direction or party.

“In fact, we are yet to have political party accepted by northerners in 2023 talk less of a candidate presented to the North to vote for. Maybe in the near future, we shall unveil our plan to Nigerians.”
