There is a grand plot to deny the southern part of Nigeria, particularly the Southwest geo-political zone the presidency after President Muhammadu Buhari must have completed his tenure in 2023.
The grand plot is mainly targeted at the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who the canal behind the plot has identified as the sole southern politician who has the resources and political structure to challenge for the Presidenncy in 2023.
Thegazellenews.com’s exclusive investigation revealed that at plot is spearheaded by the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha and the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai.
Thegazellenews.com investigation also revealed that the cabal is positioning Ambassador Baba Gana Kingibe as possible replacement for the President when he completes his tenure in 2023.
The plots are two folds: embark on serious and well coordinated media campaign against the personality of Tinubu; institutional campaign against his interests and those very close to him on one hand; and cause confusion as well as create tension in the Southwest region.
For the media campaign, thegazellenews.com gathered that a whopping N600 million warchest has been set aside to achieve this aim.
Part of the plans have started to manifest. Recently, Governor el-Rufai spoke publicly against the system of rotation of Presidency between the North and South.
Recently, Abba Kyari not only queried the Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Tunde Fowler, but also ensured that the query enjoyed serious media coverage.
Fowler is a known Tinubu man and the aim of the query and subsequent media blitz on it was to possibly deny Fowler from being re-appointed after the expiration of his tenure this year.
The recent purported election of Yoruba Leader in Ibadan by a group is also another manifestation of the plot.
Thegazellenews.com’s Investigation revealed that majority of participants at the said election were paid agents of the cabal and this medium can report that most of those who participated during the spurious election were in Abuja the following day to collect their honorarium.
The aim of that election was not only to paint Tinubu as being unpopular but also to divide Yoruba stakeholders and with the mixed reactions that greeted the purported election, it seems, the cabal is succeeding.
The plot is expected to start gathering full momentum next year when Kingibe is expected to start appearing in some strategic events across the six geo-political zones of the country.
Keep a date with this medium for update on the succession plot as events unfold.
