    Hakeem Baba-Ahmed Reiterates Nothing Will Happen If Another Northerner Is Elected President

    Hakeem Baba-Ahmed

    Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the spokesman for the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), has stated that if another northerner is elected President of Nigeria, heaven will not fall.

    Hakeem Baba-Ahmed made the remarks while delivering the keynote address at the maiden Maitama Sule Leadership Lecture Series, which was organized by the students’ wing of the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, over the weekend.

    Northerners, according to Baba-Ahmed, are not second-class citizens and will not accept playing second fiddle in 2023, when the region has the population to take first place.

    “The North is not for sale and northerners will surprise those waiting for them to queue up in 2023 and be given money in exchange for their votes,” he said.

    Anyone who does not want a northerner as President should leave the country if one emerges, according to him.

    Hakeem Baba-Ahmed also challenged the students to be proud of who they are and to refuse to be treated as second-class citizens in their own country.

    “We will lead Nigeria the way we have led Nigeria before, whether we are President or Vice President, we will lead Nigeria. We have the majority of the votes and the democracy says vote whom you want.

    “Why should we accept the second class position when we know we can buy 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, being honest is not being stupid

    “There are Nigerians who believe that because the economy of the North is being crumbled; we are running away from insecurity, we are politically vulnerable, they think they can buy us for 2023 but they are making a mistake

    “We are ready for this; we will consider every economic adversity, challenge, we will fix the Northern economy and we are the only one who can fix this Northern economy. For that reason, we are not for sale. We are in the process of rebuilding the North and we will rebuild the North from 2023

    According to Baba-Ahmed, whether the north is in power in 2023 or not, anyone who wants to break up the country will say so because they are looking for an excuse.

    Hakeem Baba-Ahmed also urged the youth to get involved in politics.

    “Don’t accept second class status because you are a northerner. No northerner is a second-class citizen in this country. If we want to support a southerner, we will support a southerner because that will be in our own interest and we can decide for ourselves.”
