Professor Yusuf Dankofa, Head of Department, Public Law, has critically explained the Northern conundrum in one passage, hear him:
-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 eerie silence, since power is with their elites who are thoroughly dependent on public treasury to survive.
-The poor too draws 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.
