Newspapers review February 24: Governors react over depletion of Excess Crude Acount





Major headlines of mainstream Nigerian newspapers for Monday, February 24, focus on the reactions and worry of governors over the sudden depletion of the country's Excess Crude Oil Account (ECA).

The Nation reports that state governors in Nigeria have expressed worry over the depletion of the ECA from $325 million to $70 million just in a space of one month.

The governors were surprised that the withdrawal was made without their consent since they are regarded as stakeholders of the same account.

They are also shocked by the rising level of insecurity in the country caused by the activities of Boko Haram terrorists.

Vanguard reports that Governor el-Rufai of Kaduna state has said that in the spirit of political fairness, the 2023 presidency should be zoned to the southern part of the country.

Governor el-Rufai said that it is a common and acceptable understanding in Nigeria that power is rotated between the north and the south in Nigeria.

Therefore, the governor said that at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari's tenure in 2023, the south should be given the chance to produce the next Nigrian leader.
