The PDP chieftain made this disclosure in a post shared on his X page on Monday, May 20.

Bwala tweeted:

"@PeterObi only stands the chance to be Nigerias president from 2039 when he will clock 79, or above 79 years.”
"The reason is @officialABAT will finish his two terms, then power would come to the north for another 8 years, before it goes to the south. The e-rodents who keep shouting “we are the youth” by then would be saying “we are the elders.”

Bwala made this statement a few days after Peter Obi linked up with Atiku Abubakar, PDP bigwigs and other top northern politicians, fuelling speculations for a possible alliance to dislodge the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2027.
