Professor Yusuf Dankofa captured the True Northern conundrum

These are words of Professor Yusuf Dankofa,
“I think the north is only interested in power and nothing more.
The sweetness of power and the allure it brings is what appeals to them and not work.
If not, how can a region be so decimated by its own internal contradictions and trudge on as if the region is not regressing?
In the face of calamity, what you see is an eerie silence, since power is with their elites who are thoroughly dependent on public treasury to survive.
The poor too draw happiness from the fact that power is in the hands of their elites even if they will die of poverty and insurgency.
We are happy that power is with us even though we don’t know what to do with it. This mindset will definitely lead others to seek to move out of the union.
You can’t slow down your own progress and those of others and expect them to clap for you”
