Senator Ibrahim Saminu Turaki, former governor of Jigawa state has said that Northerners are their own greatest enemies.
Speaking during the launch of his political movement, â€˜Saminuyaâ€™, at his Bandawa farm in Kazaure local government area of Jigawa, Senator Saminu Ibrahim Turaki said, â€œThe people that destroyed the North are northernersâ€.
He stated that â€œWe have a crab culture in the North. You know, when the crab wants to climb it brings others downâ€.
â€œIn the North, we donâ€™t like ourselves. Anybody that is in power wants to destroy his predecessor. The northerners are willing tools for whoever wants to destroy somebodyâ€ he added.
Speaking further, Senator Saminu Ibrahim Turaki also expressed joy over the emergence of the All Progressives Congress, APC saying, that opposition would make it difficult for the executive to have the legislative and judiciary in its pocket.
â€œWhen you have a two-party system, then there would be real democracyâ€œ, he added.
