An aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe, has reacted to the statement of the Northern Elders Forum, on Nigeria’s next President.
The chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, on Wednesday, warned that heaven would fall if another Northerner is elected after Buhari.
The spokesman of the group, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, in a statement had said the North is not ready to hand over power to another region in 2023.
The NEF spokesman added that anyone against a Northern president should leave the country if someone from the region emerges.
Baba-Ahmed stated this at the Maitama Sule Leadership Lecture Series in Zaria, Kaduna.
However, Igbokwe, on his Facebook page wrote: “Heaven won’t fall if another Northerner is elected president – Hakeem Baba-Ahmad.
“Me- Hear me well, heaven will falloooo.”
The statement of the NEF spokesman has been condemned by prominent individuals who believe it’s the turn of the South to produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.
Southern Governors a few days ago insisted that the region would produce Nigeria’s next president.
