Northern Senators allege unfair treatment

The Northern Senators Forum has alleged unfair treatment of the region in the projections and provisions of the N28.7tn 2024 budget.
In a statement by its spokesman, Suleiman Kawu Sumaila, representing Kano South Senatorial District, the Forum said it was committed to addressing the concerns of the Northerners.
The Senators stated this in reaction to the outrage that greeted the decision of the federal government to relocate the headquarters of Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, and some departments of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, from Abuja to Lagos.
The Senators also lamented the relocation of some federal agencies to Lagos State.

The northerners have also raised concern over what they described as the lopsided allocation of funds in the 2024 budget, calling on their representatives at the National Assembly to rise up against any move to undermine the Northern region
