The Oil In Nigeria Was Discovered With Northern Nigerian Money – Northern Group Says They Are Not Parasites

In response to claims that the North is a parasite on the rest of the country, the Northern Consensus Movement (NCM) has placed a N100 million bounty on the head of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Awwal Abdullahi Aliyu, the president of the NCM, remarked that, contrary to common assumption, Nigeria’s northern region is the country’s economic heart.

He said that Northern Nigerians discovered and constructed the oil and refineries that can now be found in other parts of the country.

He urged the federal government to establish a Northern Development Ministry, which would be funded in the same way as the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

His words, “we are called parasites. Today we are declaring that, we, the Northerners are the economic heart of Nigeria. And nobody can address us as parasites, we are the economic heart of Nigeria. The oil that is so being busted on today were discovered, harnessed, and the refineries were constructed with Northern Nigerian sweat, with the Northern Nigerian money with the Northern Nigerian economy. The money of groundnut pyramid and cotton was the one that was used to research, discover and build the refineries that some other parts of Nigeria acclaimed to be their own property. If that is the case, just like [NDDC] and Niger Delta ministry, there should be a Northern development ministry that should also be given the same amount of money given to [NDDC], because our money was the money that was used to develop the oil.”

A collaboration of 75 Northern organisations has formed the Northern Consensus Movement. Nnamdi Kanu was accused of treason and being behind the recent attacks in the southeast by the organization just a few days ago. They guaranteed N100 million to anyone who could bring him back alive.
