2023: Why S/east don’t need to negotiate with North for power – Adebanjo

Leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, has said the southeast geopolitical zone does not need to “negotiate” with the North for power as regards the Nigerian presidency, because it is the right of the East to produce the next president in 2023.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Adebanjo spoke on Monday during a public lecture themed: ‘Nationalism and nation-building in Nigerian history,’ in Lagos.

“It was said that the South-East must come to negotiate with the North because politics is a game of numbers. My case is – and I told people yesterday – the case for the East is not to beg for a favour; it is their right. Yet, each time I hear that they should go around because the North has the population, what fraudulent population? You can’t sell that to me,” Adebanjo said.

“They tell us to work together but unfortunately because they now have produced a president at the helm of affairs, they say ‘no one can become president except you come to the North and unfortunately, some southerners have been brainwashed that they can’t do anything except they bow to the North. I don’t believe it.

“What right has the North to dictate who will become our president? We were brought together not by peace, not by agreement, they forced us together and we agreed, so to continue to live together in peace must be by agreeable terms. The East has the right not because he is Igbo but because it is in Nigeria.”

  1. IT IS SAID AND BY A KNOWN FACT THAT PEOPLE GROW WITH WISDOM. YOU CANNOT SAY SAME FOR THE Ayo Adebanjo WHO HAS TURNED OUT TO A SENILE NONOGEN LIAR.

    His unguided spouts are indications of retardants manifests instead.

    HOW CAN ANY NORMAL RATIONL PERSON SAYS THERE IS NO NEGOTIATION IN POLITICS. ARRANT HOGWASH FROM A FAST-RECEDING BRAIN.

    Can somebody come to the rescue of this slowly dying brain cells that good succeeding politics is about negotiations alignments of concerted interests and by the way where is it written in the constitution that it is the turn of the biafrauds or their exclusive right to produce the next president of Nigeria?

    INCLUDING, WHY IS Ayo Adebanjo SO FORCEFUL ABOUT INSANELY IMPOSING A biafraud ELEMENT ON NIGERIA. WHAT IS HIS INTEREST AND OR WHY DID HE ARROGATE TO HIMSELF THE RIGHT TO DICTATE WHO BECOMES THE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA?

    The senile nanogen liar Ayo Adebanjo has become a nuisance in the political terrain of Nigeria. His perversion for the candidacy of Peter Obi is nearing a brink for morbid melancholic menace.

    Ayo Adebanjo MAY SOON LOSE IT.

    1. I just want to said little for that and thank Ayo Adebanjo talk the truth he is a United someone, and who wants to shear the food on the table with his brothers. Shortly Nigeria have three geopolitical way as will know, we have Hausa/Fulani from northern we have Yoruba from SouthWest and we have Igbo from SouthEast. Yoruba have already got their shear under Obasanjo from West, northern yardua but wasn’t completely then certainly, Jonathan take whatsoever and complete because he was the vice-president by then because of the Constitution of Nigeria shortly, Buhari from northern, now after Buhari it will go to the South East, Obi Obidatti directly . So you other Yoruba people are forcing and expecting to go Southwest again are directly wanted to divide Nigeria I’m a northerner
