He acknowledged occasional setbacks but underscored the region’s contributions to national development and governance, showcasing its political prowess. He also argued that the North had sacrificed to ensure power shift and to foster unity in the Nation.

He said in an interview with The Sun, ”In a free and fair contest devoid of deployment of Incumbency might, the claim that the North may not produce the President in 2027 is not reasonable, given the region’s dominant numerical superiority. Historically, the North has played a significant role in shaping Nigeria’s political landscape. The region has produced prominent leaders who have held the Presidency such as Shehu Shagari, Umaru Yar’adua, and Muhammadu Buhari. The North competed with other regions and defended its political interests very well. It occasionally lost ground when it made massive sacrifices to keep the nation united and push it past critical turning points when national survival was threatened. These leaders have contributed to the development and governance of Nigeria showcasing the region’s political prowess.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
