Information minister, Labaran Maku, has lashed out at former presidents from the North and leaders in the part of the country.
In the opinion of the minister, who spoke on Tuesday in Kaduna, President Goodluck Jonathan has developed the North more than past leaders of the region since independence.
According to Maku, the North should blame its past leaders and not the Jonathan for the underdevelopment of the region.
Being also the supervisory minister of defence, Maku claimed that northerners should be grateful for the efforts Jonathan makes to provide infrastructure for the region.
He said, “There has been a denial, a deliberate denial that President Goodluck Jonathan is not developing the North and there has been an agenda of deceit, which is carried out mainly by people and some politicians in some part of the North, who want to deny the imprint of this administration.
The official stated that the role of the acting government was tremendous in the development of the North. He said he was ready to debate with anyone on this and to back it up with facts.
He concluded his speech, noting that the evidence is very clear that since 2007, the Yar’adua/Jonathan Presidency has impacted so much on the development of the North.
