The President, Congress for Non-Political Party Members (CNPM), John Mayor Echefu, has said in an interview with Daily Sun, that 2023 will be a year of humiliation for Southern political leaders aspiring for the top leadership position in the country.

He said, a lot of Southern leaders who refused to be wise, will once again, fall flat into the hands of the North who already made clear their intentions to cling on to power beyond 2023.

He said, "The way the country is going, are we sure there will be 2023. All the politicians in the South who are working to become president would lick their wounds as the politicians from the North are going to betray them.

"The North is not ready to relinquish power to the South and that will be the beginning of trouble for the country.

"This is their mentality, and they are arrogant and totally cocooned in their self worship of their power and authority and so on.

"They don’t care what happens to this country. It is a very dangerous proposition to say that the president will not come from the South after eight years of it being in the North.

"The North thinks that they are so powerful that others will just stay pensive and submissive, that is not going to work.

"If there will be 2023, any Igbo man or Yoruba that goes to Aso Rock will be humiliated because booby traps must have been set for such a person if the North bowed to pressure not to contest."

We are still a few years away from the next presidential election. The Southwest which has played a great role in Buhari's emergence as President in 2015, and in his re-election about a year ago, have been tipped to be the region to produce Buhari's successor in 2023.

Vice president Yemi Osinbajo, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Chief Olabode George are among South West leaders eying the number seat. However, whether or not the North will relinquish power to the South, is anyone's guess.
