North cannot keep challenging southern leaders over development of their people -Suleiman insist

The spokesman for pan-Arewa organisation, Coalition of Northern Groups Abdul-Azeez Suleiman has lambasted governors from the northern region over the economic backwardness of their respective states.

Abdul-Azeez Suleiman disclosed this while reacting to the governors' position on the Value Added Tax trouble between some southern states and the federal government. According to him, the position of the northern governors who are aligning with the federal government is an indication that the governors have failed to move the region forward to a path of self sustanbility.

He said this in an interview with the punch.

"It is too early in the day to expect a reaction from us on that as it will amount to prejudice for us to speak on a matter that is before the court. We are watching the development. Be that as it may, the move has further exposed the bankruptcy of a vast majority of those who pose as northern leaders. They have failed to move the region onto paths of development, they have even failed to get together, think together the way their southern counterparts do. We can’t keep challenging initiatives by the southern leaders for the development of their people without initiating alternatives for our region.
