Buhari wasn’t the choice for Northerners, he was packaged by Yoruba people- CNG

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has denied that Northern Nigerians wanted Buhari back in 2015.The group insisted the former Military Head of State was chosen by the Southwest and sold as the perfect alternative to Goodluck Jonathan.Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, the Group’s spokesman noted that President Muhammadu Buhari was accepted by the North because the region was being ravaged with insurgency.He added that despite the fact that the current administration has more Northerners in key positions, the South has benefited more than the North, especially as terrorism still reigns supreme there.The CNG’s spokesman said, “We all can testify that the North has been the major casualty of the policies of the Buhari administration while the South is the major beneficiary. As far as the North is concerned, Buhari was not the candidate for the North but an arrangement made by the South to suit certain interests.“This (appointment of northerners into critical positions) cannot be a yardstick for judging a people’s development or prosperity.”
