Founder and Senior Pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has asserted that the North will again hold on to power come 2023.
The cleric asserted while reacting to the recent emergence of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate.
Recall that Atiku swept his contenders at the primaries of the opposition party last week. The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, is expected to give the PDP candidate his return certificate on Wednesday (today).
Reacting, however, to the outcome of the PDP’s presidential primaries, Apostle Suleman said the withdrawal of Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal from the PDP presidential primary race was an indication that the Southern part of the country are noisemakers.
The cleric insisted that the North would always hold onto power because the Southern part of the country are noisemakers.
According to Suleman, Tambuwal stepped back from the race and supported Atiku because Northerners are loyal to themselves.
Apostle Suleman, who was addressing members of his church said:
“You saw what played out yesterday in Abuja? Why do you think the North has been in office and power for many years? Even if the North is not in office, the North will be in power.
“If they are not in power, they will be in office. This is because the Southern region, especially South-South, are noisemakers. The North will allow you to finish making your noise then they will shock you. Atiku knew the Southerners were noisemakers, and he worked on it.
“They are 100% loyal to themselves; that is why Tambuwal could take such a decision. All my Northern friends have not spoken ill of me, but the Southerners are the ones mocking me.”
