Northern Elders express remorse over their decision to vote for Tinubu.

In an interview with The Guardian, Suleiman articulated a shift in the region’s electoral perspective, particularly concerning the upcoming 2027 general elections. He underscored the importance of unity and consensus in choosing a presidential candidate going forward.

Reflecting on past decisions, remarked, “The North erred in backing Bola Tinubu for the presidency in 2023, and it’s unlikely they’ll repeat that mistake.

There’s a recognition of past missteps, with a commitment to selecting a candidate capable of unifying the nation and governing in the collective interest of all Nigerians.”

Expanding on the North’s future electoral strategy, he outlined a move towards prioritizing candidates perceived as more inclusive, less contentious, and aligned with the interests of all regions.

Furthermore, Northern groups voiced regret over their support for Tinubu, citing concerns about purportedly biased federal government appointments under his tenure, contributing to ongoing discussions about his candidacy and political influence.
