The Coalition of Northern Groups have stated that jobs meant for indigenes in the north have been hijacked by people from Southwest.
Briefing newsmen in Kano on Sunday, the group , Abdulazeez Suleiman stated that northerners are being deprived of employment opportunities in the south.
Not excluding northern leaders from the blame, the group stated that all vacant positions in the north have been surrendered to southerners, due to their negligence.
“ Whereas , the local content clause stipulates that all levels 01 to 06 positions in every government establishments must go to indigenes of the host communities in the North , the reverse is the case,’’ Suleiman said.
The group also blamed the level of insecurity on the state of employment in the north.
“ Recurring violence , involving cattle theft , abductions for ransom , attacks on civilian targets and other forms of banditry all over the North , poses a serious threat to peace and security, with the uncoordinated and inadequate responses by the Federal and state authorities , thereby deepening mistrust and perception of the authorities as biased ,’’ he added.
