Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu State, has said Nigeria will collapse if President Muhammadu Buhari hands over to another politician of northern extraction in 2023.
In a video posted on his church’s Facebook page on Wednesday afternoon, the outspoken cleric canvassed for power to be transferred to the South.
“President Buhari, you better plan well and hand over to someone in the South. If the north want to take over, this country will collapse. There may be no Nigeria again, if Mr. President, as a result of whatever, tries to hand over power to the north…How it will happen, nobody will imagine the enormity of the disaster. Nigeria will stand at a point whereby going forward will be an impossibility, going backward will be a dream.
“After Buhari, the northerners should forget about presidency in this coming political era,” Mabka said.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that currently, South-Easterners including the Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi; former Abia State Governor, Orji Kalu, a former president of the Senate, Pius Anyim, Minister for Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu and the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba have been reported to be interested in the 2023 presidency.
