Gbagyis must in­ten­sify po­lit­i­cal bar­gain­ing - Za­mani

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Dickson S. Adama, Kaduna

The Gbagyi peo­ple all over the coun­try have been ad­vised to in­crease their po­lit­i­cal bar­gain­ing be­fore pol­i­tick­ing be­gins.

The call was made by Pro­fes­sor An­drew Za­mani of the Nasarawa State Univer­sity, at the Kaduna His­tory Con­fer­ence, or­ga­nized by the Gbagyi De­vel­op­ment Union (GDU).

He said the Gbagyi peo­ple should also in­crease their con­struc­tive en­gage­ment with govern­ment at all lev­els.

In his pa­per ti­tled “His­tor­i­cal De­vel­op­ment in Cen­tral Nige­ria and its Im­pli­ca­tions For the Gbagyi Peo­ple,” Pro­fes­sor Za­mani also en­joined them to see their tra­di­tional in­sti­tu­tions as sa­cred and re­sist dom­i­na­tion by any group.

“Gbagyi peo­ple have con­trib­uted tremen­dously to build­ing the Nige­rian na­tion in many ways and have made good strides in na­tional de­vel­op­ment ef­forts,” he said.
