“Your appointments lopsided, Nigeria is more than Lagos state” – Borno elder blasts Tinubu

Prof Khalifa Dikwa, the Dean of Borno Elders Forum, has criticised the appointments made by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, saying the focus on Lagos indigenes does not bode well for the country.

Dikwa also accused the Tinubu administration of provoking Nigerians by introducing harsh policies, urging the government to withdraw the recent 0.5 per cent cybersecurity levy on electronic transactions introduced by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Professor Dikwa said, “Northern elite are not happy with Tinubu because each of these policies affects the north entirely. There is an issue with his appointments because most of his appointees are either misfits or weak or taken to the wrong places.

“Anything ICT, finance, works were lopsided. It must not be northern elites alone, even people from the South-South and the South-East should be appointed. Nigeria is more than Lagos State.”

He alleged that the Tinubu administration was being remote-controlled by institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank.

His words: “Everything that will keep impoverishing the poor Nigerians will keep on coming. They are interested in bringing Nigeria into crisis and lawlessness.

“Nigeria has reached a situation where if Nigeria has enough money even those who are not working should have given money in order to survive. This is a wrong timing.”
