President Bola Tinubu has been encouraged by Jaliu Aliu Charanchi, the Coordinator of the Coalition of Northern Groups, to put an end to the speculations that are spreading about the relocation of FAAN and the CBN to Lagos, as they appear to be fueling division among Nigerians.

He pointed out that a significant portion of votes for Tinubu originated from the North, implying a political obligation to reward the North. Expressing disagreement with the decision to relocate the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) to Lagos, he asserted a total rejection of the stated reasons behind the move. He warned that the recent actions are negatively impacting the ruling party, as people perceive them as punitive towards the North.
He said in an interview with The Sun, ”The President shouldn’t allow all these rumors to be going about, it is only creating disunity among Nigerians. The Hausa man is saying that Tinubu is doing what he’s doing because he wants to favor his people. Majority of votes given to Tinubu came from the North, so politically he’s supposed to reward them and not punish them.
If you are taking CBN and FAAN back to Lagos just for reason best known to you, we don’t agree with that reason and we reject them in totality. The reality is that this is already affecting his political career and the All Progressive Congress [APC] as a party, people are seeing what he’s doing as a punishment to the North and to jeopardize Abuja as FCT.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
