‘Northerners Are Willing Agents of Destruction’ – Senator Turaki


Senator Ibrahim Saminu Turaki, former governor of Jigawa state has said that Northerners are their own greatest enemies.


Speaking during the launch of his political movement, ‘Saminuya’, at his Bandawa farm in Kazaure local government area of Jigawa, Senator Saminu Ibrahim Turaki said, “The people that destroyed the North are northerners”.

He stated that “We have a crab culture in the North. You know, when the crab wants to climb it brings others down”.

In the North, we don’t like ourselves. Anybody that is in power wants to destroy his predecessor. The northerners are willing tools for whoever wants to destroy somebody” he added.

Speaking further, Senator Saminu Ibrahim Turaki also expressed joy over the emergence of the All Progressives Congress, APC saying, that opposition would make it difficult for the executive to have the legislative and judiciary in its pocket.

When you have a two-party system, then there would be real democracy“, he added.


  1. then lets face the reality and stop beating around d bush, spending fg money in vain—let the north go to hell with their cran culture

  2. Thank God people are beginning to speak out. It is surprising that all the big traditional rulers and emirs in the North, the retired generals and ex-heads of states/military administrators cannot come together and decide that these killings in the North must stop.

    It seems that there is a conspiracy of silence among the Northern elite. Most of them are preoccupied with condemning every action of Goodluck Jonathan.

  3. One of the crabs has now spoken! We have not forgotten your role on the third term agenda of Baba Obasanjo. We pray that God will force the other crabs to open their mouth too!!
