- Chief Ralph Nwosu has declared that Asiwahu Tinubu and Governor Nasir El-Rufai cannot govern Nigeria in 2023
- Nwosu wanted the duo to jettison their thoughts of one day becoming president because their zones have produced Buhari and Osinbajo
- The national chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) said it is the turn of the south east to produce the president
Neither the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, nor the governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, can take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, Chief Ralph Nwosu has said.
Nwosu, the national chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), stated thus on Tuesday, May 14, as reported by Daily Independent.
The politician was quoted as saying that the duo would fail in their quest to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
He asked Tinubu and El-Rufai to perish the thought of ever having to govern Nigeria, especially since the north west where the latter comes from has produced Buhari while the south west has Yemi Osinbajo, the vice president for eight years.
“The Igbo question is what Nigeria must deal with. It is the most crucial matter on the table now, outside the rigged and fraudulent elections. Unfortunately, the APC national leaders and the incumbent president lack the leadership and vision to address this problem.
“They think power for power sake, and are too consumed by self-righteous parochialism to think of the good health of Nigeria yesterday, today, and tomorrow. At this stage of our nationhood, no ethnic group can dominate the others without causing serious dislocation,” he said.
According to Nwosu, any person having such agenda is not thinking well for the country, which should strengthening the bond of unity and building diversity values into its culture.
“But El-Rufai and Tinubu cannot be president.
“The north west has served two terms with Buhari’s first term. Yar’Adua served one term. The south west has done eight years. The north west should be careful and exercise restraint, even their northern brothers may become disillusioned with them if they wish to dominate the rest of the country, and continue to want to take more than a fair share in the Nigerian enterprise,” he said.

He argued that continued parochialism will kill Nigeria, lead to tragic end and obvious ugly consequences, adding that it impossible for an ethnic group to dominate others.
In the spirit of fairness and equity, he said, it was the turn of the south east to produce the president in 2023, adding that the current APC leadership was not working to address this anomaly.
Legit.ng earlier reported that El-Rufai had advised Lagosians on how to end godfatherism in the state’s politics.
El-Rufai gave the advice on Saturday, May 4, while responding to questions after delivering a lecture at an event in Lagos.
Following criticisms, the governor said on Monday, May 13, that he does not have any apology over what he said in Lagos recently that godfathers can be defeated.
El-Rufai said this after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House.
