2023: Southern Nigeria Should Produce The Next President – Ganduje by valentineuwakwe(m): 2:17am On Feb 13
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has said that the southern region of the country should be allowed to produce the next president of Nigeria.
The governor joins his Kaduna State counterpart, Nasir El-Rufai and other prominent northern politicians who had made similar calls in recent days.

“The southern part of the country but there should be a consensus of the members,” he told Channels Television while reacting to a question of which zone should produce the 2023 presidency.

“Zoning system, even though it is not in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a strategy for winning elections.”

Speaking further, Ganduje said that his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will win the 2023 presidential election, adding that the ruling party has done well for Nigerians.

“I think in 2023, APC will win the election because more people are coming into the party. Though we lost some governors because of intraparty problems, at the same time some are coming into the party.

“Also there is a very strong movement now to reconcile the major actors and I think that is also making the party stronger,” he added.

FFK don share the password to APC members. grin

Ganduje obviously confirming the password cheesy.

They will soon start narrating how Ganduje's credentials qualified him to be a gov. And indeed, his laudable projects in Kano state. Watch the yesterday's illiterate almajiri suddenly becomes the most educated northerner today.

Meanwhile, 2023 race don dey gather momentum. FFK is set to dump ipobs.

Star boy working hand in hand with Tinubu behind the scene.

However, ipob miscreants are still inside Tinubu's butthole. grin

Worth bearing in mind that Ganduje is an unapologetic Tinubu loyalist. This is what we keep telling Igbos. Give Tinubu his dues.

He was working and building men, bridges and alliances while IPOBians were busy playing politics of hate and enmity. It is stupid to think Tinubu won't or should not profit from his investment. Life does not work like that and it is only Igbos who believe in cheating, criminality and reaping where one has not sown as a way of life.

Let all the small boys do their initial gra gra. When things swing into flow then some will know Tinubu is a political titan some Moin Moin Buni and his crew, all unknown yesterday and nobodies without APC, cannot dismiss.

If only politics were about insults, hate and foaming at the mouth then you people will win each and every time. Unfortunately, politics in Nigeria is about the followership and backing a candidate can recieve.

That is where any Igbo or other Southerners will fall flat on their face against Tinubu. This is the reality hateful losers never want to accept.

Moin Moin Buni and co can do their best in search of their perfect Southern stooge in the form of Jonathan, Umahi, Fayemi etal but will APC delegates vote any of those over Tinubu at the Party Primaries?

Ganduje who is talking knows who he will support from the South and align his political machinery behind. Nuff said.

OfficialAwol:


Come let's reason together (Isa 1:16, may not be correct)

Since return to democracy in 1999;

Obasanjo(Southwest) ruled for 8 years.

Yar'adua(Northwest, God rest his soul) ruled for 2 years and some months.

Jonathan(Southsouth) ruled for 6 years.

Buhari(Northwest) is likely to rule for 8 years.

Osinbajo(Southwest) likely to be vice-president for 8 years.

From the above analysis, it is clear that by 2023, southwest shall have had the most years around the presidency with 16 years more than any region.

If it's not greed, disrespect to other regions and disregard for national cohesion, tell me what else justifies Southwest clamour for power?

If you still have cognitive capacity, you would agree with yourself that however you make the calculation, 2023 presidency should be an exclusive preserve of the Southeast.
First read these short post below and move on to the long one after that.....


NOW; Seriously, let's be sincere. As things stand today politically, why would the APC even hand power to us Igbos in 2023? 
On what grounds? 
On what records?
On what politics?
Is power given to anyone? 
Is it an appeasement or a gift? 

The APC is a political party. The main focus of a political Party is to hold power and keep it to enable it deliver on its agenda. So if the APC reads that the SE does not want the Presidency or does not have the capacity to help them win and keep power, they will stick with the regions that can and work with individuals who are interested.
 


SOUTH EAST: IS IT NOT TOO LATE?

I have read the recent transmissions by Senator Bukola Saraki directed at my Igbo tribe. I have deliberately kept mum on this as I had earlier resolved to speak less on Igbos as regards the 2019 Elections and 2023 Presidency having said quite a bit. 

However seeing as some of my brethren have swallowed the cheap bait, I will chip this in just to keep the reality before us, at least for posterity sake. Truth is bitter but it's still the best medicine. 

My people say; 'He who does not remember where the rain started beating him, will not remember where it stopped'. 

REWIND TO 2014. 
A new National Party was being conceived. Political Parties, political players and Regions were being wooed to the new alliance. 

'We' Igbos (read South East) vehemently refused to touch it even with a long pole. We packaged, sold to ourselves and bought the baseless propaganda that it was an Islamic alliance that would birth an "Islamic" and "Hausa" Party. Simply because those our brethren heavily invested in the PDP at the time were afraid of losing their vested selfish interests.
Till today I'm still trying to fathom the basis for that wicked and twisted deceit especially as many of those Igbo elites who sold that dummy have since ported to the same APC.

We failed to even identify with that new Alliance. Hence the Party, APC was birthed without any remarkable input from us or presence. The few amongst us who aligned were called all kinds of names and abused to high heavens by us even when they were proven right afterall.

Thus the few Igbos who were part of it were at best fringe players as they didn't have the required clout to make serious demands and do the necessary political wheeling and dealing required in Politics to strike the hard bargains since politics is all about interests and numbers. They were even suspect, so much so that it was only their personal political sagacity that gave them whatever they got.

That Party went on to win the Presidential Election which in truth, most of us never believed it could or would, because of our half baked permutations and poor understanding of Nigerian politics. But it did. 

Curiously we turned up at the fore front of telling this same Party how it should share it's 'spoils of war'. We became hypocritical moral champions with an over bloated sense of entitlement. Who does that, in all political reality and practicality? But we did, even while vehemently and vociferously still refusing to shift our position, style and rhethoric.

We dug in. Supported every bad thing and person against the Party, the elected President and the Administration while denying any and every good done to and for our Region.

Fast forward to where we are today. Almost four years after the 2015 misadventure, we have stayed put at 2015, refusing to move forward, refusing to shift grounds, refusing to play pragmatic politics, telling ourselves the same lies we cooked and bought in 2015 and some more. 

Now barely 5 months to another election, we have started again saying "APC cannot give Presidency to Igbos in 2023". "Buhari cannot hand over to an Igbo man because Buhari hates Igbos". "APC is deceiving you", bla bla bla.

Of course. We will believe Saraki, who has only but a fanthom dream of becoming President and whose only known record is selfishness but we can't believe Buhari who's already President and who has a record of voluntarily picking two great Igbo sons as running mates in the past? Chukwu aju.

It is interesting and vital to note here that the PDP which many of us still proudly support and adore was in power for 16 solid years and in those years there were 4 Presidential Inaugurations and on none of those was an Igbo man found worthy by the PDP of even Vice Presidency and we are still bold to say it is the APC that has not even finished one and a half tenure that doesn't want to give power to Igbos. Odi nma

NOW; Seriously, let's be sincere. As things stand today politically, why would the APC even hand power to us Igbos in 2023? 
On what grounds? 
On what records?
On what politics?
Is power given to anyone? 
Is it an appeasement or a gift? 

The APC is a political party. The main focus of a political Party is to hold power and keep it to enable it deliver on its agenda. So if the APC reads that the SE does not want the Presidency or does not have the capacity to help them win and keep power, they will stick with the regions that can and work with individuals who are interested. 

Make no mistake, I have always said, I do not blame us Igbos for the decision majority of us took in 2015. It's our right. But continuing to pretend that it was other regions, Buhari or the APC that made us do what we did then or remain where we are today is purely self deceit and I refuse to play that ostrich game. 

As far back as 2014, I and many others made that argument that Igbo Presidency was very feasible in 2023, ONLY under under the APC, ONLY IF we did a couple of things right politically. I personally continued to speak loudly on that even after the 2015 elections until when I realized that we were not ready to play the politics that was required and now I dare say it may be too late. Or is it not? Time will tell.

For now, we can continue to tell ourselves that we cannot hold the Presidency of Nigeria. I heard and read many of our brethren go from PDP to Biafra/seccesion (read IPOB) to Referendum to "Igbos do not need Presidency but Restructuring" etc forgetting that all that didn't lie squarely with us alone. We think other regions are not reading our body language?

I really don't care what Saraki writes or says because they've all come to realize that it's very easy to play us like a flute. So like Saraki, like Fani Kayode, like Fayose, like Atiku, even Jonah Jang of all people, they keep playing us.

I've learnt not to bother myself anymore to avoid unnecessary abuse from nonentities . As some of us have said, it's good governance we want, even if only one village will be producing the Presidents. So be it.

Ka Chineke mezie okwu. 

Revelation2021:
since you don't support we the igbos ipobs,
all your writeups here is just a big waist.

we need Igbo presidency come 2023!
Lol cheesy.
No be only waist, Na Ikebe grin cheesy wink

“Zoning system, even though it is not in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a strategy for winning elections.”
Zoning is not constitutional...neither is ethnic cleansing and herdsmen carrying assault rifles constitutional though it's the trend. Not just should the south produce the next president. That president must be IGBO


In other news, I think Oduduwa people should focus on expunging and expelling herdsmen from their land. I mean, if I were they, my focus would be on doing this with a sense of urgency. It beats me how a major tribe would allow themselves to be turned to Southern Kaduna before our very eyes. Why should Yoruba folks all be so cowardly that they can't even properly arm their Amotekun to at least match the weaponry of herdsmen? Please, I implore Oduduwa people not to allow these blood suckers to make them another Hausa because if they succeed, those of us in the SE and SS will be next. Yoruba should grow balls and make us proud for once. They've been sooo disappointing. Failing to realize this in 2015 is one thing. Failing to defend themselves and being slaughtered like a minority tribe is really another. Back up that Igboho guy or form a real militia. This kain cowardice don tire we southerners.

So it is only igbos that believe in cheating?wow!!!just wow!!! Meanwhile, as much as I believe anyone qualified, irrespective of zone should be the next president, the way you people ascribe invincibility to Tinubu baffles me. There is a thin line between being a follower and worshipping the person. How come he couldn’t use his influence to stop the party registration because clearly he and his men are against it(and they know what it means)but registered regardless?i want to see how he beats the cabal to their game and I really can’t wait to see him pull it off. If he does, then I will join you in hailing him as the most invincible politician and the “alpha and omega” in Nigerian politics. Meanwhile, that your statement “ only igbos like to cheat” makes you a bigoted fellow. I don’t like bigots even if they are from my tribe.
