He stated this during an interview with TheCable on Monday, January 29.

“Even if my ward is working in CBN, is she the only person that is going to be transferred to Lagos? There are hundreds of people that who plan to move to Lagos. Whenever an issue like this crops up, instead of addressing the issue, the people and some of the reporters will now concentrate on the messenger, not the message,”

The federal lawmaker added that his comments that there would be political consequences are also the truth because President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will need votes from the north.

“Haven't you seen the reaction from the Katsina elders, northerners generally, are against this move. Is it not true that he will seek the votes of northerners in 2027?
