Presidency Issues Stern Warning To Northern Critics

Published by admin on

The Presidency has issued a serious warning to northern critics following reports of the relocation of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and some Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) departments to Lagos State.

Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser on Information and Strategy to President Tinubu, made this known in a post on his official Twitter handle.

Onanuga dismissed rumors that President Tinubu is planning to move the Federal Capital to Lagos, stating that such rumors are dishonest and perpetrated by those trying to draw attention to themselves. He emphasized that Abuja has come to stay and is backed by law.

The Arewa Consultative Forum, a northern group, described the movement of FAAN and some CBN departments to Lagos State as a deliberate plot against the Northern region. The group claimed that Northerners would be negatively affected by the spontaneous exercise.

In response, Onanuga stated, “Administrative decisions should not be politicized. Let’s stop the dirty politics. We can’t be playing politics with everything.” He further added, “President Tinubu has no plan whatsoever to move the Federal Capital to Lagos.

The rumor first surfaced during the campaign last year by opponents looking for all manners of weapons to stop him. We trashed it. Those peddling it anew are dishonest, ethnic and regional champions, trying to draw attention to themselves.”
