Norther Elders declared that the region would be wiser and more discerning with its votes in the 2023 general elections.

Ango Abdullahi Reveals Who North Would Vote In 2023

The NEF chairman, who spoke on Thursday at a book launch in Kaduna, said the North would only support the presidential candidate that would lead Nigeria with integrity, competence, compassion, and the fear of God in the 2023 general election.

According to him, the north will be more critical about who wins their support for the 2023 election, noting that those currently campaigning through religion and ethnicity to divide the region would fail because they have had enough of religious and ethnic conflicts.

Abdullahi said, “the North will participate in all political and electoral activities as equals, and with respect to other Nigerians who respect us. The North wants leaders who will lead with integrity, competence, compassion and the fear of God.

“We will not support a candidate that fails to convince that he will radically improve the quality of governance and the integrity of leaders. Secondly, northerners will not be intimidated into making choices that do not improve the chances of real changes in their current circumstances.

“We will participate in all political and electoral activities as equals, and concerning other Nigerians who respect us. In the North, we consider attempts to create divisions and conflicts around religion as hostile acts.

“We have paid a high price in conflicts around religion in the North, and we do not need to do more. Our insecurity and collapsing economy do not discriminate between Christians and Muslims.

“We cannot seek solutions from them as Muslims or Christians. I have to state here that we are witnessing some of the crudest and most unproductive campaigns to create divisions between Hausa and Fulani people, and create distances between Christians and Muslims in the North.

“We warn that these contemptible attempts will fail because they find no support in history, going back centuries, or in the recent past. While we differ in faith and ethnicity, history, and geography, our experiences in living as Nigerians have created roots and bonds that cannot be destroyed by desperate political gambits.

“Thirdly, we will be more critical than all others over who wins our support. We bore scars from governance by one we substantially voted into power twice. Northern votes will make a major impact in the 2023 elections as well, but they will be cast by people who are now wiser and more discerning.”

KanyiDaily recalls that a former House of Reps member, Abdulmumin Jibrin claimed that the NNPP presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso has inherited the 12 million northern votes controlled by President Muhammadu Buhari.
