BREAKING: Even If You Give Them Presidency Tomorrow, The North As A Region Will Still Be Poor

Hon. Jonathan Vatsa, the head of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Niger State and a former commissioner for information, culture, and tourism, advised a northern sociopolitical group calling for an end to the nation’s adoption of a rotating presidency since 1999 to stop “day dreaming” and acknowledge that the arrangements cannot be changed until every region benefits from them.

This advice was published in a news article published by The Sun Newspaper.

Vatsa explicitly informed the gathering that South East would have a chance to compete for the top seat when President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the South West finished his eight years in government.

However, Vatsa, the former public affairs coordinator for former Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, insisted that “President Bola Tinubu must serve out his eight-year term with this call, and the Igbo man must test presidency before we can tempered with that political arrangements.”

Next, we’ll decide whether or not rotation is necessary. Lack of equity, justice, and fairness continued to be the main issues this country was confronting on a national level.

He Said: “Even if you give them presidency tomorrow, the North as a region will still be poor because the leaders are stealing the money and keeping in their individuals pockets”.

He further cautioned them to speak for themselves and not the whole North adding that, “their threat that they have the number is an ever exaggeration of the true situation in the north today because I don’t know which North are they referring to.

“Is it the geographical North or the one that is already in disarray and being ravaged by bandits and insurgents. There are killings in Zamfara, Katsina, Niger, Kaduna and other places on a daily basis.
