With all attempts at diplomacy to create a nexus of understanding gradually failing by the day, there are indications that the Northern and Southern parts of the country may be on a collision course over the race for the 10th National Assembly leadership.
Reports revealed that some political forces in the North, who are miffed by what they believe is an attempt to impose presiding officers from the zone on them, may adopt an approach that is certain to lead to conflict ahead of the June 13 inauguration of the 10th National Assembly.
This is coming just as close allies of the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, from the South West have urged him to thread with caution, especially as it partains to the leadership tussle in the Green Chamber.
It was further gathered that top traditional rulers, one from the South-West and two from the North, have intervened in the matter.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) had adopted Senator Godswill Akpabio from South South as Senate president; Senator Jibrin Barau from North West as deputy Senate president; Hon Tajudeen Abbas from the North West as Speaker of House of Representatives, and Hon Benjamin Kalu from the South East as deputy Speaker.
