Reasons why Northern Nigeria is extremely poor – Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani, who is the Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, explained why Northern Nigeria is in “extreme poverty.

Mr. Sani stated that the North is going through serious poverty because of its neglect of agriculture and over-dependence on oil.

He also said in a post on his Facebook page, leaving aside the moral and ethical standards and economic vision and legacies of Ahmadu Bello were part of many other reasons the region was poor.

The post was titled: “Nine reasons for extreme Poverty in Northern Nigeria” reads: “Neglect of Agriculture & dependence on oil revenues.

“Decadence & collapse of public education; Fatalism; Septic extremism and toxic inter-ethnic violence;

“Abandoning the moral and ethical standards and economic vision and legacies of Ahmadu Bello; Culpability of successive Northern leaders in power; entrenched Handouts culture;

“Pliant attitudinal encumbrance of not challenging leaders and hold them to account or the Slavery of loyalty or inimical subservience;

“Decades of systemic marginalization, emasculation and oppression and Institutional contempt for the poor by the regional elites.”
