2023: Shift Presidency To Southern Nigeria, Oluwo Tells Northern Elders, Politicians



-I Will Join Yoruba Nation Agitators If —Oluwo

The Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, HIM Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi,has threatened to join Yoruba Nation Agitators with other monarchs If the presidency is not given to the South in 2023.

Oba Akanbi said the Yoruba Nation Agitators will be vindicated if power is retained in the Northern Nigeria. He stated let the Southern candidates compete among themselves because the conventional power shifting is cementing the unity of the nation, urging politicians not to tear Nigeira apart.

Oluwo noted his traditional voice doused tension of the Nation Agitators… appealing to Northern traditional rulers, notable politicians and stakeholders to intervene in shifting power to the Southern Nigeria.

He expressed the strength in our diversity and pray such should not be checkmated on political ground.

He said southern candidates are credible and capable to lead Nigeria, saying there is no justification for denying them power for the unity of the country.

A statement by Oluwo through his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem,reads “We’ve capable and credible candidate from the Southern Nigeria vying to be president of Nigeria. The conventional power rotation has contributed immensely to cement the unity of Nigeria. Retaining the power in the North will spur further agitations likely to question the oneness of Nigeria”

“I’m a leading Natural Paramount Ruler from the Southern Nigeria dousing tensions of the Yoruba Nation Agitations. My intervention was to ensure a united Nigeria. Then, the Agitators raised many issues for consideration.One of them was the conventional power rotation of the presidency. We hoped their voice was noted for consideration. We don’t pray to see such a demonstration again. It can be curbed with3 political fairness ahead of 2023 general elections. Politics must not tear the country apart”

“I’m appealing to Northern traditional rulers and stakeholders to consider Southern presidency in the interest of fairness, equity and unity. President Muhammed Buhari of Northern extraction has almost completed two terms of 8_year. In fairness,power should eturn to the South”

“Retaining power in the North will fuel Agitations. We hope some of us who quenched the previous protest will not join should the power remains in the North”

“Once again, I enjoin stakeholders, owners of Nigeria and opinion leaders to prioritize Nigeria than personal interest. We should crave for unity, togetherness, oneness and fairness. I stand with one Nigeria”
