Hon. Goni Lawan said that “when I first heard of the action of the CBN governor, I was surprised. I asked whether Yobe and Borno states were not parts of Nigeria, as these attacks took place there first.”
“There was a time during the General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd.) era when there was a coup (Gideon Orkar coup) and they said some of us were excised from Nigeria.
“So, I had to check the 1999 Constitution again to be sure that Yobe and Borno were still parts of Nigeria.”
“This action by the CBN governor is an act of terrorism; in fact, he is a terrorist. Sanusi is causing confusion in this country. Up till today, Yobe and Borno states have not received any assistance from the Federal Government on this issue of attacks.”
