By Joy Odor

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Smart Adeyemi has called on every Nigerian to support the incoming administration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima for the socio-economic development of the country.

The Senator who represents Kogi West in a media briefing on on Wednesday in Abuja, Adeyemi stressed that Nigeria will thank God some day for electing Tinubu and Shettima because they will make Nigeria very prosperous.

He urged the president-elect to confer National Merit Award on the Northern Governors for the heroic role they played in the power shift by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from the North to the South.

He said after thanking the Almighty God, the Northern governors needed to be commended for their great role in making the victory possible, stressing: “we have to commend Northern governors because no matter how good a building is you have to look at the foundation.”

“Our candidate, incoming president and his vice came this far because the Northern governors came to a conclusion that the Presidency should be zoned from the North to the South,” he added.

Adeyemi said as they are celebrating as a party, they must thank the Northern governors who came together and said “for the peace and unity and stability of Nigerian nation, power should be shifted to the South.”

“That helped the emergence of the best candidate Nigeria has ever produced for presidential election – a man of good antecedent, a man know not to be sentimental, a man of great strength of character, intelligence, a man that is cerebral and highly mobile, a man with a great record of service to God and humanity.

“To me, the Northern governors deserve National Merit Award for what they have done. If the North had insisted on fielding a candidate, then only God knows what would happen to Nigeria. The governors we have today in the North, I see them as the new Sardauna, the premier of Northern region.

“When I speak about Sardauna, I speak against the background of his qualities, how he governed the diverse North and today we still have monuments of his achievements in every part cutting across ethnicity and tribe.

“What makes a good leader is to have a large heart and be considerate to other people. Today, the Northern governors have proved to the whole world that the are the new Sardauna of this generation. The only way to compensate them is for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to give all the Northern governors that came together and said power must move to the South National Merit Award.

“Whenever the history of this dispensation will be written, the role of Northern governors at that convention will be an integral part of it. It will be said the North in their wisdom came together and said let power shift to the South.”
