He also stated that the present crop of leaders have run this country aground while calling on Nigerians to ensure that consideration of tribe does not determine the emergence of a president, governor, or any other leader in 2021.

Reacting to a resolution by southern governors that the presidency should come from the south in 2023, Baba-Ahmed said the north is not opposed to the call, but warned that it would be setting a dangerous precedent for the nation’s constitutional democracy when the president has to emerge based solely on the part of the country he/she comes from.

According to him, Nigerians deserve a president that will carry all Nigerians along, and not a tribalistic one

“Tribal politics not good for this country”, he stated.
