President Bola Tinubu received a strong warning from Senator Ali Ndume, the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Army, about possible political fallout if the President moves the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) headquarters and some CBN departments to Lagos State.

Thisday reported that Ndume expressed concern during an interview on Channels Television, stressing that the President could be misled by a group he called the “Lagos Boys.” Ndume claimed that these people don’t know how Nigeria functions and won’t be able to support the President in a crisis.

Recent reports indicated that the government had announced the relocation of FAAN’s headquarters to save expenses and streamline operations. Due to departmental congestion, the CBN intended to move some of its offices to Lagos.

While he was talking, Ndume said, “I am sure the president will reverse it, because it does not work. You cannot have two capitals, or is the CBN governor going to be operating from Lagos and headquarters of the CBN is in Lagos ?”

“Do you say that because majority of our oil is extracted from South-South, you take the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) to the South-South, or because Nigeria’s agricultural produce are more in the north, you take the Ministry of Agriculture to anywhere in the north?”

“Further talking, he said, “It does not work that way, and that is one of the problems that is cropping up, but I am very sure, I am very confident that Mr. president will look at this because he is a nationalist, not just a Lagos man.”
