The minister of State Power, Hon Mohammed Wakil has raised alarm that the North will lose opportunity of having a two term at the presidency unless the zone backs the re- election of President GoodLuck Jonathan.
Addressing youth and women leaders after successful campaign rally for Mr President in Maiduguri, the minister alerted the North General Buhari had promised to serve for only one term, warning that a vote for Buhari is a vote for return of presidency to South West in 2019.
According to Wakil ,”instead of voting for a man who will short change the North and deny it of a two term presidency, we believe it is in the best interest of the North to support president Jonathan.
“General Buhari said he will serve only one term if elected. So Pastor Osibajo will take over in 2019.The North should allow President Jonathan to complete a new term in 2019 so that the North can rule till 2027.
“We must be careful not to fall prey to sinister plot to keep the north down politically. If the grouse of some people is for a return of power to the North ,why must we vote ourselves into a single term trap?
Wakil who charged the youth and women to go house to house to campaign for the president said Arewa voters should back Jonathan for normalisation of political crisis rocking the northern region.
