Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has stated that Nigeria have 75% of their total landmass in the 19 Northern states in the country.
Abaribe stated this on his social media page reacting to Northerner evicting the Yorubas and Igbos from their region.
“75% of the Nigeria total landmass is said to be in the 19 northern states, while 25% are in the 17 southern states. He went on and asked to know how can they convince a southerner to leave his land for them.”
Just like Senator Abaribe has said her, the majority of the lands are in the north, but the reason what northerners and most especially herdsmen are more interested in lands located in the southern part is what many find it difficult to comprehend.
