Dangote Blasts State Governors For High Poverty Rate In Northern Nigeria by dachilino: 3:54am On Apr 04, 2019
Aliko Dangote who spoke at the 4th edition of the Kaduna Investment Summit (KadInvest 4.0) in Kaduna on Wednesday, blasted state Governors who according to him are responsible for the high poverty rate in Northern Nigeria.Aliko Dangote who is Africa's richest man, blasted Northern Nigeria state governors who he accused doing little to end the high poverty rate in the region. He noted that 60 per cent of northerners lived in extreme poverty, saying it was unacceptable for a people with vast arable land for agriculture to live in poverty.

According to him: “Nigeria is ranked at 157th out of 189 countries on the human development index. While the overall socio-economic condition in the country is a cause for concern, the regional disparities are in fact very alarming. In the North Western and North Eastern parts of Nigeria, more than 60 per cent of the population lives in extreme poverty.

“It is instructive to know that the 19 Northern states which accounts for over 54 per cent of Nigeria’s population and 70 per cent of its landmass, collectively generate, only 21 per cent of the total subnational IGR in the year 2017. Northern Nigeria will continue to fall behind if the respective states governments do not move to close the development gap.

“And that is why we are always saying the biggest challenge that we have and what we have been praying for is to have 10 governors like Mallam Nasir El-Rufai to move the northern Nigeria forward. Closing the gap requires multi years investment and government will not be able to raise the require capital funding, only the private sector can raise the capital to fund the level of investment that this country needs."

They will not listen to him rather they'll attack the south and blame south. It's everybody's fault they don't grow. The only thing they know how to do is drinking oil from SS while claiming it as their own. Parasite

Just like Lamido Sanusi Lamido, hope Dangote will not become a victim of northern victimization?

Meanwhile, they both as well as all northern elites, emirs & influential leaders contributed to weaponizing poverty in the core north using the instruments of ignorance, gross illiteracy, religious fanatism, etc

The north has 1000 years to catch up with the south.

In per capita income, Education, finance, human right, equity and social justice.

Their leaders are greediness redefined, their men breeds like rat with reckless abandon.

It will take donkey years to come alive.

If this country divides between north and southern protectorate, the north will eat their children after 5 years.

After 17 years in Nigeria I concluded there is no hope.

Okay.

Meanwhile please parents should be very careful of the sort of daycare they send their kids to because you may never know what your kids are going through. No kid no matter where in this world deserve what this lady did in this video.

I cried watching this and I plead that you all should try to share it as far as it can go so that the lady involved can be brought to book. It is really sad.

The North has not shared enough of the crude oil rents and receipt from the oil producing regions amongst itself. So in my opinion, there aren't enough illiterates or poor people in the North yet.

North is nothing, will continue to be nothing. poverty and backwardness is their destiny. Give each and every one of northerners 50 million naira. after 10 years, they will be back at their low lives. they lack aspiration and their leaders know this and can't help this situation.
