Southerners Have Hijacked Jobs Meant For Northerners – Coalition Of Northern Group


Ted Odogwu , Kano

The Coalition of Northern Groups on
Sunday in Kano said that job opportunities meant for indigenes of the
northern states had been hijacked by people from the South .

Briefing
newsmen on the state of the nation , as it affected the North , the
spokesman of the group , Abdulazeez Suleiman , lamented that northerners
were being denied employment opportunities in the South .

According
to him , all vacant positions available in the North , as guaranteed by
the local content clause of the Federal character provision in the
Constitution, had been surrendered to southerners, as a result of the
negligence of the northern elite, who pose as political leaders of the
region.

“ Whereas , the local content clause stipulates that all
levels 01 to 06 positions in every government establishments must go to
indigenes of the host communities in the North , the reverse is the
case,’’ Suleiman said.

He also described the North as
systematically crippled by multiple security challenges , which threaten
the region’ s population and political unity , as well as inhibit its
economic and social activities .

“ Recurring violence , involving
cattle theft , abductions for ransom , attacks on civilian targets and
other forms of banditry all over the North , poses a serious threat to
peace and security, with the uncoordinated and inadequate responses by
the Federal and state authorities , thereby deepening mistrust and
perception of the authorities as biased ,’’ he added.

The
coalition condemned the action of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State ,
who openly declared Rivers as a Christian state and went ahead to prove
it by demolishing a mosque in Port Harcourt .

It said that the
governor ’ s action was in breach of the guaranteed freedom of every
Nigerian to practise their faith unhindered by any legislation or
obstacle imposed by a state or a community .

Recalling another
brutal encroachment of people ’s freedom by the Lagos State Government ,
the group accused the government of apprehending and humiliating dozens
of northerners , who were seeking opportunities to lawfully run their
businesses in the state , the same way people from other parts of the
country carried out their respective trades of choice in the North .

In
its resolutions , the group demanded from the Federal Government proof
of its capacity to protect citizens in all parts of the North , as
minimum evidence that it is serious about its responsibilities .
