North only ruled for 9 years, we are not ready to handover power in 2023 – Arewa Youth Leader

The leader of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Mr. Yerima Shettima has said that the Northern Nigeria has ruled for only 9 years since 1999.

Shettima whose interview with Sun newspaper was confirmed on its Twitter handle reacted to the statement of former governor of Kaduna State, Mr. Ramalan Yero who advised the North to handover power in 2023 to the South.

According to him, Yero as a former governor of Kaduna State can’t speak for the entire North.

He went ahead to say that the North is not ready now to handover power in 2023 as former President Goodluck Jonathan breached the zoning arrangement by contesting and winning the 2011 Presidential election thereby denying the North its right to complete its tenure.

We are not going to disintegrate the country, but we are asking other zones to see reasons with us, he added.
