He stated, “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, having won the Primary election, we saw droves of APC Northern leaders decamping to the PDP to give support to Atiku Abubakar’s presidential bid, while the candidate himself has not hidden his hatred for Power Shift to the South by saying the North Should not vote for Yoruba and Igbo, this too is a huge taint against the North in future Nigeria’s Elections.

“We know President Buhari led administration will hand over on 29th May, 2023, but to who?

“A Northern continuity or balance of rotational power to the Southwest? this is why the Nigerian Youth Coalition (NYC), a coalition of the Northern and Southern Groups alongside Omoluabi Coalition Group led by Tunji Balogun is interested to proffer solutions through constructive engagements and proper setting of records straight on how power (Seat of the President and Vice President) sharing formula, to include Senate President, Speaker, Chief Judge, Chief of Staff and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) must henceforth be rotated among the six geopolitical zones, irrespective of religion(Christian or Muslim Faith), ethnicity and political pendulums.
