General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has doubted the emergence of a southerner as the next president of Nigeria.
He said this during his church’s convention in Abuja, saying that the northerners work as a team.
He illustrated his point with the stepping down of Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, for another northerner, Atiku Abubakar, at the Peoples Democratic Party’s convention in Abuja on Saturday.
The PUNCH had reported that Atiku Abubakar got 371 votes to beat his closest contenders, Nyesom Wike who polled 237, and the former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who came a distant third with 70 votes.
Suleman 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 the 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 per cent 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.
