The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has described President Muhammadu as a product of Southern arrangement in 2015. 

The group said Buhari was presented by Southern politicians in 2015 as an alternative to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The group's spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman said to everyone's knowledge, President Buhari was not the candidate for the North in 2015. 

According to the group, Buhari was packaged by southern political forces right from the merger that produced All Progressives Congress (APC) to his victory at the primaries.

The CNG further explained that Buhari was presented by the South as the only alternative to former President Jonathan. 

It said as the North was being terrorised by insurgents at that time, it had no option but to accept Buhari. 

According to the group, the South has benefitted more from Buhari's administration than the North.

Though Suleiman admitted that Buhari's administration appointed more northerners into critical positions than southerners, he added that such should not be used to measure the prosperity of the people.

The CNG said, “We all can testify that the North has been the major casualty of the policies of the Buhari administration while the South is the major beneficiary. As far as the North is concerned, Buhari was not the candidate for the North but an arrangement made by the South to suit certain interests.

“This (appointment of northerners into critical positions) cannot be a yardstick for judging a people’s development or prosperity.”

Suleiman said the North has been confronted by a more severe security situation than other regions despite such appointments.
