2023: Tinubu speaks on North ‘betraying’ him


Festus Keyamo, the official spokesperson for Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) 2023 Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), has said it is “an insult” for the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to expect the ruling party’s Northern leaders to betray his principal.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Keyamo, also the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, said the forthcoming 2023 elections will prove decisively that the North has tremendous passion for the unity and cohesion of Nigeria. He expressed his confidence that the APC governors are fully behind Tinubu.

“It is even an insult for Atiku Abubakar’s men to suggest that @officialABAT will be betrayed by the APC Northern leaders.

“Since betrayal runs in their veins, they think it’s the norm for everyone to behave like their Principal. February 25th will teach them what honour and integrity means,” Keyamo wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Sunday.

  1. It is an insult to the unity and cohesion of Nigeria to even been talking about North candidate in this equation of who becomes the next president of Nigeria.
    For equityand ffairness sake, the north should support either Peter Obi or Bola Ahmed Tinubu injustice league brnfs war and cry for sessesion. Born to rule mentally won’t help this country.

      1. What about the one of shehu shagari 1979-1983, Buhari 1983-1985, Babangida 1985-1993 then Abacha 1994-1998 where did you keep that one .
        Please relax and wait for next 8years .

      2. Please get your mathematics right.
        You summed up only the period from OBJ to present. Do a total picture.

        1. Big fool use your brain who are the political gladiators you know in Nigeria stop thinking with your anus Ewu

      3. Buhari is to be blamed. If he had worked to the satisfaction of Nigerians, whosoever he anoints would have rode on the back of his good job to victory. Unfortunately, he has made APC so vulnerable. I wish BAT success.

      4. In that case, you need to add years of military rule where the northern leaders were in power in majority of years.

      5. And your military forefathers ruled for 45 years none stop!..making the greatest unified decision against the South!!

      6. Tell us where those who ruled Nigeria from 1979 to 1999 hail from. (Obasanjo handed over to and took over from). Was that a different Nigeria?

    1. This argument lacks morality and is most unfortunate. Tell me, why should the west after several shots at the presidency want to keep the east in perpetual isolation and still claiming to wish national cohesion. BAT was the greatest beneficiary in this PMB government ensuring that he cornered all positions to his cohorts. Now you want to talk about the north – please sharap.

    2. The most insult to our secular is the presentation of same faith ticket, so BAT is out of the equation for fairness, equity and justice

    3. Dear friend, if Westerners can think of running for presidency this time, when the East is yet to produce a president , without thinking it an insult why should the North not contest the presidency.

    4. The equity you are seeking is one sided hence you include Tinubu. A Yoruba man is current vice president of Nigeria, Obasanjo, a Yoruba man has rule 8 years, waiting the Yirubas wants? If you truly want equity, it is turn of th South East.

    5. That is true, when PMB Came out, all the southern & Western Nigeria surported him. We can not vote any candidate from North at this time. So the Northern Nigeria should be ready to vote any candidate from Yoruba or Ibo region. [email protected]

    6. Mr Ojo which tribe is synonymous with betrayal in Nigeria, I hope you will be brave enough to answer my question with honesty.

    7. It’s democracy, we are northerners we have the right to vote for whoever we want, nobody can tell us who we should vote for. It’s our right, it’s our decision, and it’s our vote so stop wasting your time. Let me tell the only people can stop us from voting for Atiku Abubakar our fellow northern is our Imans, who are you to tell us who we should vote for

    1. That’s it what I’m thinking too
      This is democracy everyone has right to vote for who ever he likes from which ever party,
      And these people are keep saying rubbish wai “born to rule” there is nothing like that.

    1. Please, bro, put sentiments aside….all the odds are against BAT…..poor performance of APC GOVT, disrespectful muslim- Muslim tickets, BAT questionable integrity, his mental health etc

    2. If you want the north to support a candidate from the south like we did to OBJ and Abiola,tell your people to desist from abusing any of our candidates from the north on grounds of ethnicity and religious differences, and in addition,any candidate from the south must be mentally,spiritually,physically fit to rule the nation

    3. We have no country yet. Our loyalty is to our tribes and regions. Indeed Nigeria is mere geographical expression.

    4. In your father’s house abi? Let’s see how that mannequin comes even 3rd come 25th of February.

    5. U are not God,pls if u really a prophet u claim to be u beta pray for your upcoming generation bcos ur decision might destroy their life,advice from lovezone international

  2. The worst thing about betrayal is that it comes from one very close. By extension, those that you trust. Let’s watch and see.

  3. Yes, let apc rule again for another 8 years so we can buy fuel for #600 per liter and our children will be kept at home for another 2 years of asuu strike. Just for #2000 that u will be given for 4 years. Who curse nigeria? This time, by the grace of God this curse will not have any effect on us-nigerias. Peter Obi all the way. The next president of nigeria by the grace of God

  4. Thank you my dear brother obj and Jonathan rule for 14years let north complete their own 4year tenor before we can talk of who go again

  5. Every one has the right to vote and to be voted for, Nigeria is bigger than tribe we know the hardship he introduced to us because of health challenges.

  6. And it’s not an insult to the unity and cohesion of Nigeria to parade a same-faith ticket?
    It is also not an insult to Nigeria to present a man who can’t hold a tea cup with one hand for the presidency of the country? Haba, jamaa!

  7. To me had it being the south had the population of North, they will never allow North to rule them. The North are very easy people.

  8. This time , this turn belongs to South East and I hope the injustice against the South East in this regards won’t be the abattoir to our disintegration, injustice to one is injustice to all!!

  9. The masses has said “it’s Peter Obi and Baba Amend Datti we want” hence the Direction of Feb., 25th 2023 Presidential Election.

  10. Am sorry Tinubu is not d right Candidate for APC at dis time. Let’s put sentiment aside. He didn’t win d ticket he bought it. Even d APC government don’t want him there dat is why he is not getting d support he suppose to get from d central. D governors who supported him to win d ticket will also betray him
