He said: “I gave southeast four substantive ministers in the ministries of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Investment, Science and Technology and Labour.

“Seven states in the North got Ministers of State and of the two Ministries headed by your sons, I cannot take any decision on foreign policy and investments without their input.”

President Buhari went further to promise that his administration will focus on the east-west roads construction, second Niger bridge and the railway construction in the region.
