Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Ali Ndume, has insisted that relocating some departments of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Federal Airports Authority (FAAN) from Abuja to Lagos is not the right decision.
Ndume stressed that Lagos is too congested.
In a statement he signed, the Borno Senator said: “I stand by what I’ve said about the relocation of FAAN and some departments of the CBN to Lagos State. If it is about decongestion, Lagos is not the right place.”
“There are CBN offices in all the states of the Federation. Why move the departments to Lagos that is already populated?”
“Since my intervention, people have been using a particular newspaper to attack me and saying that I hate the Yorubas. They’re ignorant and they don’t know what they’re saying.”
