Alleged 5 Conditions Osibanjo Must Meet To Succeed Buhari - Northen Cabal

By Ukorebi Esien

The growing uncertainty and fear surrounding the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari, and the call from Nigerians for the President's resignation  has caused a lot of tension and fear among northern politicians. In a move to safeguard their eight year ticket, they have tabled some stringent conditions under which they will allow Vice President Yemi Osibanjo take over from President Buhari in the event of any eventuality.
Report allegedly has it that the worried politicians from the Northern Hausa/Fulani bloc who have been highly favoured by the administration have expressed concerns that power may leave their region if Buhari’s health hampers him to rule. They are also putting Yar'Adua's case into cognizance as they seek to fortify the security of the Northern Slot.  
It is very obvious that the political big-wigs have failed in their lobbying tactics bid to force Osibanjo to resign, thus they have now resorted to placing him on conditions. They listed some conditions which the vice president must consent to before any peaceful transition of power to him can be allowed. The conditions read as follows as stated by Scan News:
1. That the North will take over power come 2019, hence Osibanjo must not contest for Nigeria president at the expiration of Buhari’s tenure in 2019.
2. Osibanjo’s Deputy must be a Northerner and a Muslim.
3. Osibanjo must ensure that Nigeria remains one at all cost; therefore he is expected to ensure that the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu is not released, and to uphold Buhari’s method of suppression and clamp down on Biafra activists in the country.
4. That most key positions held by Northerners under president Buhari must remain untouchable.
5. That Osibanjo must not probe notable Northern politicians who have been indicted of corrupt practices and embezzlement under Buhari’s administration.
The report further alleged that the Northern politicians have warned that should Osinbajo fail to uphold the listed conditions, they will refuse to support his administration and make the nation ungovernable for him just as they did to Jonathan
However, Oracclle is yet to authenticate the above report as no northern group has made the above conditions public.

Whether Pastor, Professor Osibanjo, The acting President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria will concede to their terms is what Oracclle is yet to find out.
