South-East Senators Bail Nnamdi Kanu At The Detriment Of National Unity – Shettima
Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, has blamed Senators from the South East region for placing selfish interest over national unity.
Shettima said this in Owerri, the Imo State capital, during a meeting with Igbo and Hausa leaders at the Government House.
His words: “You can take for instance the case of Nnamdi Kanu who is an ordinary criminal. When he was arrested, senators from the Southeast were falling head over heels to bail him for what they could gain at the detriment of national unity and peaceful coexistence”,
Speaking further, Shettima stressed that the challenges in the South East was not as a result of marginalisation but the poor performances of the zone’s men in positions of authority in the past.
According to him, politicians from the zone “are only interested in pocketing the resources that would have been used in developing the zone at the detriment of the people”.
He further stated that Igbo had occupied exalted positions like Secretary to the Government (SGF) of the Federation, Senate President and many others but the occupiers of those positions rather used them for ephemeral and selfish gains.
