“Those our Northern compatriots, scheming to retain power in the North are our common enemies; they’re the enemies of Nigeria.

“It is evil for some people to think they can sit in the comfort of their region to determine the political fate of the entire nation.

“Nigeria is for all of us, therefore, we must play politics in the spirit of inclusiveness.

“We, in the North have had it, we’re there and by 2023 we should quit the stage in the interest of national unity.

“Our position is that power must move to the South, South-West, South-South or South-East.

“Other parts of the country should be given a sense of belonging. This way, it would help diffuse the tense atmosphere in our national polity, he added.

Lawan further condemned a move by some Powerful Northern elites, seeking the exit of the South-East region from Nigeria.
