‘We Will Continue To Rule, Control Nigeria Because We Have The Numbers And Majority Of The Vote’ — Northern Elders

The Northern Elders Forum has said that Northern Nigeria will continue to ‘rule’ Nigeria, hinging this assertion on the fact that they have the numbers and majority of the vote.

The Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the NEF, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, who spoke at the Maitama Sule Lecture Series organized by the students’ wing of the Coalition of Northern Groups, held at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, on Saturday, added: “We will lead Nigeria the way we have led Nigeria before whether we are President or Vice President, we will lead Nigeria.”

He continued: “We have the majority of the votes and democracy says vote whom you want. Why should we accept a second class position when we know we can buy a form and contest for first class and we will win?”

“Why does anybody need to threaten us and intimidate us? We will get that power but be humble because power comes from God. We inherited leadership and being honest is not being stupid.

“The North has pride; we are humble enough to know that we are going to run Nigeria with other people but we are not going to pay a second fiddle to anybody. We may not have the most robust economy, there are people who are trying to strangulate us even more than we are being strangled,” he said.
