Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari has said that the Niger Delta region didn’t benefit from the Goodluck Jonathan presidency despite the fact that he is from the region.

Masari, a former speaker of the House of Representatives, also condemned leaders of the Niger Delta for how they handled the region’s resources.

The governor made the comments while speaking during an interview with magazine “The Interview”

“For six years, we had a Niger Delta president. Let us see what difference he made in six years when he was president,” he said.

“When the excess crude account became pocket money, how much of the money went to the Niger Delta?” he added.

Meanwhile, Jonathan has been accused of sponsoring the activities of militant group, Niger Delta Avengers.
