Abdulmumin Jibrin, a staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has attacked northern political elites who he accused of working only for their own interests rather than for the development of the region.
In series of tweets late on Sunday, March 19, Jibrin said the northern elites are behind Nigeria’s problems because they are always doing just what they would gain from.
He said: “When the northern elites come with hush voices talking about Northern interest, chase them away! The concept of northern interest is a myth.
“The reality is NORTHERN ELITES INTEREST, who fought and brought down every northern president then turn around to preach northern interest?
“When they lose power, they unite in the name of northern interest. But they have ruled for ages and the north remains the poorest! Shame!
“Shouldn’t we now ask our northern elites what they mean when they say northern interest? Who is fooling who? The interest is in their pockets!
