A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Special Adviser on Drainages in Lagos State, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, has reacted to the remark by the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), on President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.

Joe Igbokwe warned that heaven would fall if another Northerner is elected after Buhari.

Spokesperson of Northern Elders Forum, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, had said the North was not ready to relinquish power in 2023.

Baba-Ahmed had said anyone against a Northern President should leave Nigeria if one emerges in 2023.

The NEF spokesman had disclosed this at the Maitama Sule Leadership Lecture Series in Zaria, Kaduna.

However, Joe Igbokwe, on his Facebook page wrote: “Heaven won’t fall if another Northerner is elected President – Hakeem Baba-Ahmad.

“Me- Hear me well, heaven will falloooo.”

Most Nigerians have frowned against the North producing the country’s next President.

Against this backdrop, the South East has been clamouring to produce Nigeria’s next President.

Recently, Southern Governors had insisted that their region should produce Nigeria’s next President.
