The Northern Consensus Movement of Nigeria, has stated that Northerners are the economic heart of Nigeria, adding that no one should call a Northerner a ‘parasites’

This was disclosed by the leader of the group, Auwwal Abdullahi Aliyu, on Saturday, June 19, while speaking at a press conference.

According to Aliyu, that the discovery of Oil in Nigeria was first achieved with a ‘Northern sweat’.

He said;

“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 bursted on today was discovered, harnessed and the refineries were constructed with Northern Nigerian sweat, with the Northern Nigerian economy, with the Northern Nigerian money.”

“The money of groundnut pyramids and cotton was the one that was used to research, discover and build the refineries that some other part of Nigeria are claiming to be their own personal property.”

“Our money was the money that was used to develop the oil. Those that got early education from the South-South, South-West and South-East got those education from the Northern economy, from our own money from the Northern sweat”.
