This what is happening to SE Governors “Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Winston Churchill, once said: “I took a taxi one day to the BBC offices for an interviewWhen I arrived, I asked the driver to wait for me for forty minutes until I got back, but the driver apologized and said, “I can’t, because I have to go home to listen to Winston Churchill’s speech“.I was amazed and delighted with the man’s desire to listen to my speech! So I took out 20 pounds which was huge money at that time and gave it to the taxi driver without telling him who I was. When the driver collected the money, he said: “I’ll wait for hours until you come back sir! And let Churchill go to hell.”…….You can see how principles have been modified in favour of money; nations sold for money; honour sold for money; families split for money; friends separated for money; people killed for money; and people being made slaves for moneyI find this very interesting and decided to shareHope you learn something from the post

“Northerners remains the owners of Nigeria, Igbos and Yoruba are the minority”~ Gov Abdullahi Ganduje

Kano State Governor, His Excellency Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje in an interview with newsmen today stated that Northerners remains the owners of Nigeria, describing the Igbos and Yorubas as the minority.

Ganduje made the statement during an interactive session with Journalist at the State Capital, Kano on the need to restructure Nigeria.

The Governor however, emphasize on the need for every tribe in Nigeria to calm down and support President Muhammadu Buhari led administration in order for the country to move forward.

He further maintained that Northerners are the owners of Nigeria as they occupy over 80% percent of Nigeria population, thereby stated that Igbos and Yorubas are the minority.

According to him, “It is a glaring fact that Northerners occupy over 80 percent of Nigeria population and that is primarily why other minority tribes like Igbo and Yoruba should respect them for that.

“The insecurity everybody is talking about is everywhere. Before Nigerians particularly Igbos and Yorubas use to think that insecurity exist only in the North but today, insecurity in those tribes today is on the increase.

“Igbos and Yorubas are busy agitating for freedom, thereby creating their own insecurity with the establishment of IPOB and Oduduwa Republic which are now terrorizing the entire nation.

“My advise to every Nigerian is to support President Muhammadu Buhari in moving this country forward. He has achieved so much for the country and must be commended” He said.
