Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the present leaders of northern extraction are responsible for the devastating plight of the region, saying they have abandoned selfless service and resorted to theft and personal aggrandizement, daily trust reports. He added that the northern elites having jettisoned the foundation set by the founding fathers, have lead to the challenges confronting the region “ history reminds us of the visionary leaders in Nigeria, who fired our imagination through their vision, and selfless service, who did not live or fight to enrich themselves; they did not leave vast personal estates behind, the VP said. “Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Mallam Aminu Kano, J. S. Tarka and countless others clearly understood the varied issues afflicting the region, thought through them, laid the plans and worked selflessly to realize them”. He explained that in the 19 northern states of Nigeria, the human development indices “are by far extremely poorer than the rest of the country”.. the condition of the North is worrying " he said.
