Senator Shehu Sani ‎has warned Northerners, said it would be unfair for North to retain power beyond 2023 especially after the Southwest gave President Muhammadu Buhari all support he needed to win the 2015 and 2019 elections.

Sani made the remark on Monday 12 August 2019 at the residence of Balarabe Musa, former governor of Kaduna state, after paying his Sallah homage.

He advised that it would amount to an act of ungratefulness for the North to retain power beyond, after President Buhari’s tenure ends in 2023.

Sani Shehu, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly, also added that President Buhari was able to clinch the presidential seat in 2015 and 2019 because of the support he got from other geo-political zones after failing on three consecutive times.

In his words: “My views on that are very simple. It is an act of ingratitude for any northerner to think that by 2023, he or she should aspire for office in the view of the fact that, Southerners, particularly the Southwest did everything possible to support the northern candidate to emerge as the president in 2015.

“It will amount to changing the rules of the game at half time, when you are leading two zero. It can also be likened to removing the ladder after you have plucked the fruit,” he said.

According to the statement, Sani further stressed that the North should appreciate the support of progressive minded nationalists contributed by Southwest or southern part of Nigeria having worked tirelessly to remove the PDP out of power in 2015.

The Senator advised, for North to make sustainable progress, they must address the problem of majority versus minority tribes in the region in order and put its house in order.
