The possibility of the north retaining power after the second term tenure of President Mohammadu Buhari has been speculated.

However, Arewa Youths Leader, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, has confirmed the yearning of the north to retain power.

According to him, the north will produce the next president when President Muhammadu Buhari leaves office in 2023.

Alhaji Shettima reportedly stated this in an interview published in the New Telegraph on Friday, June 21.

According to the president of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, the current administration has not favoured the north, adding that the current government is purely a southwest government.

“I don’t know who is going to be the next president of Nigeria until we see those who will declare interest. However, talking about the zone, which should produce the president in 2023, I have said it on many occasions that the North will produce the next president and you could see that the issue is becoming very clear. “I don’t just make a pronouncement on something I am not sure of. We are sure that this government has not favoured the North. This government is purely a South-West government. They have taken everything.”

Stating that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), will die before 2023, Alhaji Shettima said that the only thing holding the ruling party together is President Buhari.

“Even in the National Assembly, somebody was working to ensure that his interest is protected to make it easy for him to become president come 2023, but unfortunately the party itself will die before 2023. “By 2023, All Progressives Congress (APC) will no longer be visible. The only thing that holds that party is President Buhari, but he is not coming back. This is his last tenure and I am sure the Buhari I know will be busy thinking of how to go for his retirement rather than thinking of whether the party survives or not. He has achieved all he wanted to achieve. He has become both heads of state and civilian president.”
