Auwwal Abdullahi Aliyu, leader of the group, made these comments in a press conference on Saturday monitored by POLITICS NIGERIA. According to him, the discovery of Oil in Nigerian was achieved with ‘Northern sweat’.

 

In his words; “We, the northerners are the economic heart of Nigeria and nobody can address us as parasites. We are the economic heart of Nigeria. The oil that is so being bursted on today was discovered, harnessed and the refineries were constructed with Northern Nigerian sweat, with the Northern Nigerian economy, with the Northern Nigerian money.”

 

“The money of groundnut pyramids and cotton was the one that was used to research, discover and build the refineries that some other part of Nigeria are claiming to be their own personal property.”

 

“Our money was the money that was used to develop the oil. Those that got early education from the South-South, South-West and South-East got those education from the Northern economy, from our own money from the Northern sweat”.

  1. Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has come to defend the Federal Government’s resort to loans to expand infrastructure in the country.

    Fashola stated this in Abuja at NAN Forum, the flagship interview programme of the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday.

    He stated that the country would not make meaningful progress without taking loans to boost infrastructure.

    ” It is in our own interest that government does some borrowing and spends it on investment because that sector contributes to the Gross Domestic Products and contributes to employment.

    “ I do not support irresponsible borrowing so let us be clear; there has to be some sense to this.

    “So long as you are borrowing to invest and you are investing in assets then we can have this debate from morning till night and I don’t think I will come out unsuccessful.

    “I agree everybody must keep their eyes open about how money is being borrowed, what it is being used for and whether the debt is sustainable.

    “We just delivered a rail programme through the Ministry of Transportation; that is a 100-year asset that you have got now.

    “So some economists say wait until you gather the money, that’s bad economics,” the minister said.

    Fashola also stated that the recent loans obtained by the Federal Government would not mortgage the future of Nigerians, saying the Western countries also take loans to create super economies.
