Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, spokesperson of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), has stated that northerners have the wrong person occupying the Aso Rock in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking on Wednesday at the second annual Ripples Centre for Data and Investigative Journalism (RCDIJ) dialogue in Lagos, Baba-Ahmed said the north has paid the biggest price for the failure of Buhari.
He lamented that the country might get worse than it is because there is nothing to show in the present administration that things would change for the better before 2023.
The NEF spokesman added that it is possible to have the country restructured if Nigerians elect a President that can do such in 2023.
“The north has paid the biggest price for the failure of President Buhari and nobody should attribute Buhari’s failure to northerners,” Baba-Ahmed said.
“The people in the northern parts of the country has the wrong person in office, because they are the first victims of the mis-governance of President Buhari.”
