By: Adenosine (M) |Time : December 31, 2018, 11:30:04 AM


The Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani on Monday pointed out why Northern Nigeria is in “extreme poverty”.

Sani said the region was ravaging in poverty due to its neglect of agriculture and over-dependence on oil.

In a post on his Facebook page, he also stated that abandoning 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 he 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 incumbrance of refusing to challenge 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.”

North still practice Agriculture than the South, Agriculture is not the reason for poverty in North. Not accepting Education like South, indiscriminate marriages especially early girl child marriages, wrong attitudes etc are the reason North is poor.

Totally agree with the education part. However culture is the other part because much of the North is under some kind of feudalism whereby those who have do not make much effort to introduce the ones from poor families into the business they do. If they did that, poverty will reduce over time. But if they don't, it won't matter even if all of them are educated.
