Hon. Egoh underscored that the proposed decision should be viewed impartially, emphasizing that it is not driven by political considerations. In his statements, he clarified that his stance does not carry any bias against Northerners, emphasizing the need to disassociate the discussion from regional affiliations.
Drawing a parallel to historical decisions, Hon. Egoh brought attention to the relocation of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) from Lagos to Abuja in the past. He pointed out that the individual responsible for that significant decision was a Southerner, illustrating that such pivotal moves are guided by strategic considerations rather than political allegiances.

He was the one who reasoned, he looked at so many areas and could’ve said let’s move it to some where in the South West that is not congested but they choose Abuja. So the decision to make Abuja the federal capital is not a Northern decision and Abuja doesn’t belong to the North alone. Let them look at the past elections in Abuja, it’s not only northerners that are winning in Abuja. Everyone who stays in Abuja has a stake in Abuja.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
