FAAN, CBN Relocation, Katsina Elders Warn Tinubu




President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been told that he is likely to lose the support of northerners in the 2027 general election if he goes ahead with the planned relocation of essential departments of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).

The charge was made by the Katsina Elders’ Forum, while frowning at the planned relocation of some critical projects, including the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua International Airport’s refurbished airport rescue and firefighting vehicles project to the southern part of the country.

Expressing concerns over the potential socio-economic impact on Northern Nigeria after a closed-door meeting, the Secretary of the forum, Aliyu Mohammed accused certain individuals of ill-advising President Tinubu.

He described them as enemies of Nigeria who aim to undermine the unity of the country.

The forum which also accused the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, of aligning with the federal government’s plan to relocate critical projects, also asked why he is “inviting the Israelis to come and provide security to Abuja.”

Outlining the need for President Tinubu to prioritize addressing the security challenges in the North, they stated that the North is not prepared to support him in the 2027 elections if critical departments are moved to Lagos amidst the prevailing insecurity in the region.

The forum added;

“Therefore, we are telling Mr. President, as long as he is interested in coming back in 2027, as long as he is interested in the votes of the Northerners, to reverse these unconstitutional decisions. Whoever is advising him to take such decisions is an enemy of the country.”
