Northern elder warns Nigerians against electing Tinubu, Atiku
One of the northern leading voices, Professor Ango Abdullahi, has warned that the country will be put to further trouble should either of the presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, win in 2023.
He, therefore, urged Nigerians to look beyond the two leading candidates while voting in next year’s general election.
Abdullahi, who is the convener of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), in an interview with a news medium said if either of the two is elected president, problems of the country will be further compounded because none of the two has anything to offer the country.

Rather, he projected to the Nigerian voting populace both the Labour Party’s, Mr. Peter Obi, and the New Nigeria People’s Party’s (NNPP’s), Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, as more serious presidential candidates that should be considered.
He accused Tinubu and Atiku of being active in the political space for a considerable period of time without manifesting corresponding results.
“How can you look at Tinubu and Atiku and assert that they will fix the country? They’ve been on the ground for the past 25, 30, etc. years. What do they have done? “Unfortunately, I do not know Peter Obi that well. He is a young man, a former governor of Anambra State, and an entrepreneur,” he said.
