However for zoning, Obasanjo wouldn’t have been president as a result of he misplaced his unit, he misplaced his ward, he misplaced his native authorities, he misplaced his state and he misplaced the entire of the South-West zone to Chief Olu Falae.

His tenure was truncated as a result of when God calls no one can say no. President Jonathan completed his tenure after which took one other 4 years however as I’m speaking to you, the southern a part of Nigeria has taken 14 years plus so when Buhari finishes his regime by 2023 though it’s a thorny regime, the north nonetheless has 4 years.

If all the foremost political events agree that it ought to come to the south, the south-west is out of it, they’ve accomplished their eight years.
“There’s a Benin parable that claims the mouth doesn’t cease the proprietor from speaking with it, perhaps a part of the cash he has, he needs to waste it let the individuals accumulate it but when the events and Nigerians agree that presidency ought to come to the south, it isn’t the flip of the south-west in any respect, it’s the south-east however for now I’m saying that as a catholic, it isn’t truthful to lie, it’s truthful to be simply, the north has 4 years plus to finish their tenure after Buhari.”
