“At the time he (Tinubu) was forming this government, he said the North was very dear to his heart and that he would do everything to address its challenges.
“This is why he appointed northerners into key offices. He handed over security and Defence to the North.
He gave us both ministers for Agriculture and Education. He also gave us the minister of health and foreign affairs in his quest to turn around the fortune of the region."

According to Ribadu, the responsibility to establish the north and make it what it should be is now on northerners, since the current administration has done its bit in this regard.
