Group Accused Pres. Tinubu Of Abandoning Past Administration Projects In North

A Northern Youth Group, known as Arewa Equity Movement (AEM), has alleged that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has abandoned projects awarded by the Buhari’s administration in northern parts of the country, especially Abuja -Kaduna – Zaria -Kano highway.

According to the group, pres. Tinubu has violated his inauguration pledge to be fair to all parts of the country.

Speaking to news men at a press conference in Kaduna on Monday, the secretary general of the group Comrade Ibrahim Usman Kaita, described the president as a sectional leader Nigeria has ever had, accusing him of failing to see the entire country as his constituency.

Kaita said: “In the last Nine (9) months, President Tinubu has demonstrated in most cases that he did not belong to the whole country but to a group; his tribe, which is contrary to what he said in his inaugural speech of a renew hope.

“For instance, the all important Abuja -Kaduna -Zaria -Kano highway was an ongoing project which was receiving great attention before Pres. Tinubu took over, but nine 9 months later nothing is happening, the project has been abandoned by Federal Ministry of works under His Excellency, Daves Umahi . I make bold to say that reverse has been the case, “the renew hope belongs to some region,’ but not the entire Nigeria.

The group said the Abuja -Kaduna -Zaria -Kano highway is the only most important gateway to the entire Northern region from other parts of the country including the federal capital, Abuja.

The secretary general also alleged that Mr. President appointments in his government is skewed against the North, accusing him of nepotism and favouritism.

He stated “unfairness, and nepotism have been the staple characteristics of the Tinubu’s administration.

“The government need not be told that discrimination is a danger to any society, particularly, a plural society like ours.

“Probably, it never occurred to President Bola Tinubu that he is president of the entire country and not just a section; and that he was elected by all zones of Nigeria, including the Northern zones; without the votes from the North, he would not have become President of Nigeria.

He said Pres. Tinubu should immediately order the Minister of works, Sen. Daves Umahi to resume immediate work on Abuja -Kaduna -Zaria and Kano road without delay, for equity and justice.

“our group considered it an obligation to make this press conference from a standpoint of patriotism to tell the whole world the failures of the present administration, especially in the areas of projects in the country.

Kaita said that the northern region will not vote for the President in 2027 if he continue this, especially on Abuja -Kaduna -Zaria -Kano highway.

Kaita appeal to Northern governors and members of National Assembly from the Northern extraction respectively, to intervene in the abandonment of Abuja -Kaduna -Kano highway, so that the contractor can be mobilize to sites and continue with the project, in the overall interest of the people.

The group blasted ministers from the North who are serving under the present administration, saying that all they are doing is to be bidding the interest of their master and not speaking for the region.
