The Yoruba socio political group, Afenifere has washed down the idea that the North will still rule for another four years after President Buhari is done with his tenure.
Jare Ajayi who is the spokesman of the group said such idea will not stand the test of time. He said the Northerners have ruled long enough than any other regions.
The Arewa Youth President, Yerima Shettima said that the North is meant to rule another four years after the tenure of Buhari.
Shettima said that the past presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan ruled for 14 years which was in favour of the South, and late Musa Yar’Adua and Buhari would have only ruled for 10 years till 2023, which means there’s still another four years from the north to balance it.
Jare Ajayi said it will be more reasonable to have other regions produce a president.
It is an interesting statement from the Northern youths, but they should know that the Afenifere group believes that whoever holds any political position should be fair, and must govern well.
And if this is achieved no one will be conscious of the region the next leader is Coming from, but it is always people who are benefiting from the present administration that will want the region to produce another government.
That is why it’s always a thing of it’s our turn; if unfortunately, that has not changed, it then means that such must continue.
I can say the statement made by the Arewa Youths is on sentiments, and can’t stand the test of time, because the North have ruled more than the south, taking it from 1960.
