Ahead of the 2027 Presidential elections, minister of state for Defence, Bello Matawalle, has described the Northern region’s support for President Bola Tinubu as unwavering just as he added that the president’s commitment to the region’s development and security was visible.

Matawalle said this following alleged attempts by some politicians to undermine the President’s leadership, citing his style of governance as a reason.

Reacting to moves to unseat Tinubu by Northern politicians, the minister of state described such attempts as “mere power play by unpatriotic politicians with an entitlement mentality”.

According to a statement by the director of public relations in the Ministry of Defense Mr Henshaw Ogubike,  Matawalle said “no amount of political gang up can unseat the president, and no amount of blackmail can stop him from contesting for the Presidential election come 2027.”

He reiterated that the alleged move, by some selfish politicians masquerading as oracle for the Northern region, is just mere power play by some unpatriotic northern politician without a grassroot base.
