2027: North’s Plan to Unseat Tinubu Could Destabilize Nigeria — Shehu Sani

Posted by Thandiubani on Fri 28th Jun, 2024 -

Shehu Sani issued this warning in an interview with Arise Television.

Former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has warned Northern leaders seeking to unseat President Bola Tinubu to immediately stop such a move.
Sani issued this warning in an interview with Arise Television monitored by DAILY POST, saying that such a move could destroy the unity of Nigeria.
The public commentator urged Northern leaders to key into the policies and programmes of the Tinubu administration that will benefit the Northern part of Nigeria, instead of trying to gain more political power.
Recall that Northern Nigeria has been battling with insecurity and poverty, amongst other problems.
“There is evidence of rallying of forces, regrouping of forces- political forces from the North- trying to use former President Buhari as a rallying point in order to evict the government of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and they hope to resurrect his political chance in the house of the masses and portray the government as one that has been undermining the North and one that has not been living up to its campaign promises to the region being that it has its highest votes from there. And I must warn that attempts to do that can create a serious problem for our country.

“Buhari has been in power for eight years and there has never been any serious Southerner that challenged his own government in terms of trying to remove him from office.

“And secondly, we should know that before you think of power, we should think of the whole country. We should be thinking of a united country, a peaceful country. Nigeria is still a fragile nation.

“What will happen if Southern politicians decide to also form the idea of uniting themselves and making a position that this is their stand? There will be no Nigeria.

“So, they should, in the interest of the unity of the country and the future of the country, sacrifice their own personal ambition at least for 2027, and the North will have the moral right to ask for power after the second term of this administration,” Sani said.
He stressed the need for Northern leaders to address the problems faced in their region.
Sani, however, charged Tinubu’s administration to implement restructuring, adding that it will be a systemic opportunity for Nigerians to address the problems of underdevelopment.
