“Northerners”will reject Atiku for violating the zoning agreement-Adeyeye

Sen. Dayo Adeyeye, a former minister of state for works, said Tuesday that the northern electorate would vote against PDP presidential nominee Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for breaking the party’s zoning policy.

Adeyeye, a former senator for Ekiti South, noted that northern politicians and their supporters support zoning and are always prepared to thwart any plan intended to undermine it.

The north acted against any intentions by any political party to nominate a northern candidate in the 1999 election, according to Adeyeye, in the spirit of fairness and fair play, he said yesterday during a news conference he addressed in Abuja.

The two Yoruba men, Olusegun Obasanjo and Olu Falae, emerged as presidential candidates for the PDP and the All Progressives Party in the 1999 general elections, which the former won. He went on to explain how this development led to this development.

He added that because they believed in rotation as the South had been in power for 14 years at that point, they rejected former president Goodluck Jonathan’s effort to retake the White House in 2015.

According to the nation’s political leaders, there is an unwritten constitution that dictates that power should alternate between the North and the South.

We live in a multiethnic, multireligious society with over 250 different ethnic groups, so that’s why. Since the country’s amalgamation, the North and South have been divided administratively.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense to concur that the two political divisions in the nation should alternate in power.

“This is what prompted the military authorities in 1998 to insist that the two major political parties choose their candidates from the South, particularly from the South West.

“This is due to the perceived unfairness toward the deceased Chief Moshood Abiola, who won the 1993 presidential election, as well as the fact that northern military authorities had remained in power following the election’s annulment.

The directive led to the emergence of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo of the PDP and Chief Olu Falae (APP) and the election was won by the PDP candidate.”

Adeyeye also explained that Obasanjo ensured that the PDP fielded a northern candidate that would succeed him in 2007 despite the fact that the party paraded very strong candidates from the South.

He said that was why the late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, became President. For Umaru Musa Yar’Adua’s untimely death, according to him, he would have been in Power for eight years before the president would rotate to the south.
The election was won by the PDP candidate when Chief Olusegun Obasanjo of the PDP and Chief Olu Falae (APP) emerged as a result of the directive.

Adeyeye added that even though the PDP paraded some extremely capable candidates from the South, Obasanjo made sure the party fielded a northern candidate to succeed him in 2007.

The late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, he claimed, became president for that reason. He said that had it not been for Umaru Musa Yar’Adua’s untimely passing, he would have held office for eight years until the presidency rotated to the south.

However, Jonathan, Yar’Adua’s deputy, was able to seize control of the situation by accident of history. However, Jonathan was turned down and lost the race by the time he wanted to run again in 2015.

The zoning issue, not the Muslim Muslim ticket, according to Adeyeye, will determine the winner of the presidential election the next year.

He declared, “The zoning arrangement, which the PDP candidate had broken, would determine the winner of the election next year, not the same faith ticket. The Muslim Muslim ticket is a diversion brought on by the opposition to the APC candidate.

The Muslim Muslim ticket is not particularly popular among many Nigerians. They place the utmost weight on the electricity rotating to the south, which is past due.

He criticized Atiku Abubakar’s claim that the zoning debate should be between political parties.

“Atiku’s reasoning does not hold water because when a president is elected from inside a political party, he becomes the president of the nation and not that of his political party,” Adeyeye stated.

Politicians make up no more than 10% of the total population. The question of rotation would be decided by the entire population, not the politicians.

In anticipation that power would shift to the South after President Buhari, the PDP chose a northerner as national chairman. However, Atiku betrayed Nigerians by running.
