The EndSARS protests was sponsored against the north — Abdullahi Adamu , Senator representing Nasarawa-west
Speaking in an interview with Daily Trust, Adamu, who was the Nasarawa state governor between 1999 and 2007, described the protests as “machinations against northern interest”, saying they were sponsored because “one of us is the president today”.
According to him, if President Muhammadu Buhari were not from the north, “you will never see this kind of nonsense”.
We saw some machinations against northern interest in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. One of us is the president today. And you will never see this kind of nonsense when a non-northerner is there. I am sorry and regret to say this, but that is the reality and the truth.”
Asked to name those allegedly behind the protests, Adamu said, “we do not want to start mentioning individual names at the moment. If it comes to that, we will”.
