Na'Abba: Northerners Against Zoning Because They See Buhari's Term As Waste by BeeBeeOoh(m): 12:50pm On Oct 24, 2021
Ghali Umar Na’Abba, former speaker of the house of representatives, says many northerners see President Muhammadu Buhari’s term in office as wasted opportunity.

Speaking when he appeared as a guest on Daily Politics, a programme on Daily Trust television, Na’Abba said most people in the north are opposed to the zoning of the presidency because they have not benefited from Buhari’s administration.

The former speaker also said Buhari is “highly opinionated” and runs the country without appropriate consultations.

“It is not as if northerners and southerners are at war, but in any relationship from time to time, you get some friction. This friction arises from certain reasons,” he said.

“The perception that the current president is against southerners has become a reality. I think he is not managing this country in a way that accommodates politics; even in the north, there are complaints about him.

“You cannot run a country in a manner that suggests you are highly opinionated. And this opinionation has nothing to do with the people. If it has to do with the people and their welfare, and their feelings — I think it’s ok.

“People in the south have this perception that he is a tribalist… he can’t even manage the country. Someone told me that this man can’t even manage his home, how can he manage a country?

“This idea of zoning, no matter how many times a president comes from a particular zone, it will never satisfy anybody. For example, within the north today, the idea of many people that the presidency must shift to another region is not a welcome idea because the feeling of many people is that the years of this president is a waste. They’ve not gained anything from it. So, why should anybody even talk to them about zoning? When they believe they have the numerical strength to elect another person.

“No consultation. Since he suggests that, he works alone. We become president or whatever not because we have the monopoly of wisdom. Nobody has it”.

Na’Abba said for the country to be better, it must focus on building strong institutions and not strong men.

Well they have to wait for another turn, we can all conclusively agree that Buhari is a monumental failure.

After cornering every single important position in the land? The president, the Chief justice of the supreme court, the Senate president, in a multi nation country like Nigeria? Including the lopsided domination of federal courts including the appeal Court? After cornering all juicy positions in the oil an gas sector without having a single functional oil well in the north? After creating a North East commission to appropriate almost 5% of our total VAT remittance?

After dominating the Army, The Navy, The Air Force, The police, The immigration, The customs and diplomatic corps with all northern appointments? After securing all viable and "juicy" ministries? After your billion dollars gas pipelines to the north into Niger republic with power stations at Abuja, Kaduna and Kano? After dry seaports here and there and modern highways here and there? After all the "rail revolution" in the north? Should I continue?

After all these in less that 6 years, Someone from the north opens his gutter mouth and claims that Buhari is not doing enough for the north! And he's being entertained by the press! Obviously, these guys take us as fools! They don't rate Southerners. As far as they are concerned, we exist for their pleasure. Because if they do believe they are dealing with fellow human beings, this kind of revolting outbursts won't ever be made by a northerner, after all the evil unleashed on this country by Buhari, just to please the north..

The one-way appointments that have totally favoured northerners is waste too? NNPC, NPA, Customs, all monopolized by northerners enjoying Buhari's bigotry. Building the largest Navy base in the middle of the desert in Kano is waste? What of the building of Transport University in Daura where camels is the most popular means of transport? Protecting killer Fulani herdsmen to slaughter other Nigerians, and so much more. What else did Buhari not do for these greedy northerners?

So until they have a candidate whose tenure they don't regard as waste, We'll continue to have Northern president? All the regions actually see his 6.5 years as a complete disaster.

They have an embargo on federal civil service employment, yet the wage bill continues to rise across board within the federal civil service...This has led to an exponential increase in the yearly recurrent expenditure every single year, forcing a senator from Bornu to threaten leaving Nigeria. You know why the increase in the recurrent expenditure? Because while there is a subsisting ban on employment, the folks at the directorate of employment are busy recruiting northerners into what they term "pensionable" federal civil service jobs! They go to their villages and gather all sorts of characters without the barest skill or aptitude for the job and empty them in Abuja! They don't care if that destroys the countrys finances, afteral they have Niger republic to run to..

All this one is story, since this democracy started in 1999, the south east is the only region that has not produced a president so if we are talking of fairness in zoning then it should go to the east otherwise the zoning is useless and should be discarded. What's the difference between what the north is trying to do and what the south west is doing? The south west had eight years, the south south had six years and the south east zero. So on what basis is the south west saying that it should be zoned to them again? If we want zoning then let the zoning be fair or we can as well get rid of the zoning all together.

Whao! See the reasoning of an average northern whether educated or otherwise? So what were you guys thinking when it was sai baba or death to dissenting voices? After overwhelming voting this same useless and clueless dullard twice?

What about all the Buhari's bigotry, nepotism, clannishness, ethno-religious supremacist agenda he has been promoting without any northerners opposing him (except the likes of Col.Umar Dangiwa, Shehu Sanni etc)?

Why have you guys never mandated your reps.in the NASS to use your large numbers to impeach Buhari? Why did you guys opposed #EndSARS protests as regime change? Una don tire with the upgraded next level chain? Una never chichomtin

Na’Abba: Northerners against zoning because they see Buhari's term as a waste | TheCable

Mee:

"After everything Buhari has done for the North, especially pulling millions of them out of extreme poverty, sending 5 million out of the 10 million Out-of-school Children back to school, securing their lives and properties from BokoHaram and Bandits and building massive infrastructures that will last for generations?"

In this trying times in Nigeria, Sarcasm is welcome. Instead of doing the above the genocidal criminal Buhari was busy killing innocent Shia civilians everyday and burying their children ALIVE in the multiple Shia mass graves.

I told the Northern barbarians that killing innocent Shia civilians is NEVER an "achievement". Today the brainless savages are regretting this cruel stupidity.

If Nigeria manage to survive beyond 2023, no FULANI person will ever become president of Nigeria again. NEVER!!! We'll see to it.
Buhari has shown us that every fulani person is loyal first, second and third to their bloody tribe. Let fulani mistakenly rig 2023 presidential election for another bloody fulani man and see the whole of Nigeria go up in flames. Fulanis are never indigenous to Nigeria will NEVER be.













TOTAL DISINTEGRATION OF NIGERIA WILL SAVE MILLIONS OF MIDDLE BELT AND SOUTHERN LIVES FROM FULANI AND BOKOHARAM TERRORISM!

The southeast should first get the presidential ticket from their party (PDP or APGA that is when we can vote for any southerners.
All do you expect APC to give the east party ticket?

Sometimes undertones are louder than actual but fake sounds..

Any southern against Igbo presidency is indirectly saying power should remain in the north. That person has actually been bought up . What kind of arrangement in the south will make Southwest already have 8 years presidency,8 years vice and still looking to another 8 years presidency while southeast is left holding the short end of the stick.. hehe.. even if u be olodo clown,but olodo still Sabi wetin good and wetin bad.

Take it from me anybody preaching southern presidency and is against Igbo presidency has been compromised to nsure power doesn't come south.

Thanks
