A Second Republic politician, Tanko Yakasai, has stated that it is the turn of the South-east to produce the next president in 2023, just as he said that a few Northerners clamoring for power in 2023 were doing so for their selfish interests.
Yakassai added that some of the actions of President Muhammadu Buhari do not represent the general position of the north.
According to him, “The North has 55 percent of the population of this country. One man from the North cannot speak and his views will be taken as the views of the entire North. It is wrong.
“Buhari did not speak for the North and his actions do not represent the North. He is just one man. We should separate these things and save the unity of this country.
“When Buhari ran for election, he did not win the entire North. The man who ran against him was from the North too.
“They divided the votes. If Buhari could not win the entire North, does that not tell you that his views or actions do not represent that of the North?
“President Buhari is on his own, he is a northerner but his action does not represent the North. South East is a part of Nigeria. It is high time the South East produced the President of Nigeria.”
