Northern Nigeria In Support Of True Federalism & Resource Control – Prof. Sambo Junaidu

Prof. Sambo Junaidu, lecturer at the Usmanu Danfodio University has said contrary to popular opinion that Nigeria’s Northern Nigeria is against true Federalism and resource control, the region is actually desirous of true Federalism.

Professor Junaidu, a delegate at the ongoing national conference from Sokoto state Monday said the North was not against resource control by states but wanted true federalism that would enable the Federal Government to exploit mineral resources in all the states of the federation.

Speaking to newsmen in Sokoto, Junaidu emphasised that the North was in support of true federalism rather that the kind of unitary system currently being practised in the country.

He said, if all the states must control their resources, then the Federal Government should explore the mineral resources available in other states before resource ownership would be instituted in the federation.
