Northern Leaders’ Ve Failed – Northern Brotherhood

| October 19, 2012 More

Bauchi — Acting Bauchi State chairman of Northern Brotherhood Movement, Aminu Danmaliki, has attributed problems bedeviling the north to lack of leadership and corruption.

Aminu, who stated this yesterday at a press conference in Bauchi, said the problem of the North was not lack of political power.

He said northerners had ruled the country for over 36 years with nothing to show, adding that the main problems of the region were corrosive corruption and lack of visionary leaders.

According to him, the Northern Brotherhood Movement was formed to promote peace, progress, unity and brotherhood among the various ethnic groups in the North.

He advocated the appointment of a competent leader such as General Theophilus Danjuma (rtd) to pilot the affairs of northerners.

Danmaliki added that Northern leaders had failed in their responsibility, especially in uniting the people of the North by doing away with religious, ethnic or tribal differences. He said nearly 100 years after Nigeria was amalgamated in 1914, there was still no unity in the North.

He said: “Since the exit of Sardauna, which organisation has promoted peaceful co-existence among Northerners? Where have you seen? Muslim and Christian brothers living together in peace?

“Northerners failed to come up with a leader, hence our decision to champion the appointment of Danjuma as our solution.”
