Oct 9, 2012 – 2015 Elections: Northern Nigerian Christians Say No To Muslim President

In the upcoming 2015 elections preparations, Nigerian Christians leaders in Kaduna said they’ll do everything possible to prevent the emergence of a Muslim president from the North simply because the region had produced Muslim presidents since year 1960.

The group identified as NOSCEF, Northern States Christian Elders Forum said they would do everything humanly possible to ensure a Christian wins 2015 elections in Nigeria.

In a statement during an emergency meeting in Kaduna, the group’s chairman, Evangelist Mathew Owojaiye and secretary General, Iliya Yusuf said: “The region had had enough of Muslim national leaders since independence to the disadvantage of the Christian community.

The group said General Yakubu Gowon was the only Christian president that emerged from the north and those democratically elected were Muslims who received supports from Christians.

In a statement, here are the past Muslims Presidents who emerged from the North:

  • General Muhammadu Buhari
  • General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida
  • General Sani Abacha
  • General Abdulsalami Abubakar
  • Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa
  • General Yakubu Gowon (now Christian)
  • General Murtala Mohammed
  • Alhaji Shehu Shagari
  • Alhaji Umaru Yar’Adua.

“The Northern Muslims have produced three elective presidents. The Christians from the North have produced none. Justice, equity, fairness show that the next president of Nigeria from the North must be a Christian. Nothing less than that should happen,” said the group.

Do you support them?

    Nigeria need to grow and stop this tribalism of sectionising Nigeria.Either North,South, West or East,we need person who has reforms and development to lead and not person from a particular zone in Nigeria. Nigeria will never have peace as long Nigeria is playing our politics on ethnical and religious line.Religion is not important to rule. So please help me talk to the christain northerners that muslim leaders have been better than christain leaders or can’t they evaluate?
