Gov Aliyu Vows To Expose 400 Northern Traitors Bribed To Support Jonathan For 2015


Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, yesterday, alleged that more than 400 northerners may have betrayed the region after collecting money to back President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term.

Aliyu, who is also the chairman of the Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF), threatened that the list of the traitors will soon be published for all to see.

The governor while paying tribute to the late Emir of Minna, Alhaji Ahmadu Bahago, at the 25th anniversary of the Emir of Minna, Alhaji Umaru Faruk Bahago, said the North was not afraid ahead of the 2015 presidential election.

“We hear people who say they have a list of  over 400 northerners they are going to settle, and they are sure that if they settle the 400, everything will be okay. We are looking for that list so that we will tell the people that these are the people that want to betray you. This sense of betrayal by the northerners has festered into a groundswell of mistrust”, he said.

“I must advise all of us to be conversant with the happenings in our country. We must be cautious that, through the ballot paper, we can always determine who becomes our leader in Nigeria. By God’s grace, plenty good things will happen in 2015. Whoever God brings we will follow. Do not be afraid, let there be 200 candidates, God will allow only one candidate to emerge.”

Aliyu however condemned the outcome of the Anambra gubernatorial election.

“What happened in Anambra State, we don’t pray it repeats itself in 2015 general elections because that could cause a problem for all of us as a nation. We must all put our hands on deck to ensure that INEC does the right thing and the people understand their right,” the governor said.

“INEC and others must understand that election is not all about money. If politics is about number, then northern states should not complain, because whatever touches one, touches all us.

“We must, therefore, not be afraid of 2015. Allah shall do well for Nigeria. However, our major concern should be our electoral laws and the performance of the Independent Electoral Commissioner (INEC) especially after what happened in Anambra State.”

Speaking at the event, Chairman of the occasion and former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, said Nigeria needs peace and security to develop, adding that “we must all join hands to together to make this happen because Nigeria belongs to all of us.”

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, and Ambassador Hassan Adamu, were among the dignitaries present at the occasion.
