Kano State Governor, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje has said the Northerners remain the owners of Nigeria, describing the Igbos and Yorubas as minority.
Ganduje made the statement during an interactive session with Journalist in the State Capital, Kano on the need to restructure Nigeria.
The Governor however, emphasized on the need for every tribe in Nigeria to calm down and support the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration in order for the country to move forward.
He maintained that Northerners are the owners of Nigeria as they occupy over 80 percent of Nigeria’s population, while Igbos and Yorubas are minority.
According to him, “It is a glaring fact that Northerners occupy over 80 percent of Nigeria’s population and that is primarily why other minority tribes like Igbo and Yoruba should respect them for that.
“The insecurity everybody is talking about is everywhere. Before, Nigerians particularly Igbos and Yorubas use to think that insecurity exist only in the North, but today, insecurity in those tribes is on the increase.
“Igbos and Yorubas are busy agitating for freedom, thereby creating their own insecurity with the establishment of IPOB and Oduduwa Republic which are now terrorizing the entire nation.
“My advise to every Nigerian is to support President Muhammadu Buhari in moving this country forward. He has achieved so much for the country and must be commended”.
