After leaving APC because the party didn't field a Christian as their presidential and Vice presidential candidate, former Speaker, House Representatives, Hon.
Yakubu Dogara has said that it is time for the North Muslim to be given the chance to rule in 2023 to complete 14 years like the Southern region.
He said simple calculations showed that the southern region of Nigeria had ruled the country for 14 years, while the Northern region only ruled for 10 years.
To this end, he was of the view that for fairness and justice Nigerians should support the North to produce the President that will complete additional four years to meet up with the South.
He made this known during the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)Southern Senatorial District flag-off campaign for Sunday Katung and the presentation of flags on Monday in Zonkwa.
“To those saying why should a Muslim succeed another Muslim? I will say to them, the truth is what every Christian is called to.
” And if we must say the truth, Jonathan is a Christian, Obasanjo is a Christian, Obasanjo ruled for eight years, Jonathan ruled for six years. So, if we sum the two together, we, I said we because I am a Christian, we have ruled this country for 14 years. Buhari has ruled for eight years and Yar’Adua ruled for two years, making a total of 10 years.
“So, we can only be justified by allowing the Muslims to have a balance of four years. Also, the two Christian Presidents are from the South, so, the North has a balance of four years.
