Kwankwaso Blames Insurgency on Poverty, Illiteracy


Kano State governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said there is a correlation between poverty, illiteracy and unemployment and insurgency in north eastern Nigeria.

The governor who spoke during an interview with newsmen in Kano noted that the federal government can be accused of not doing enough to stop the insurgency across the country.
He lamented that it was unfortunate that despite the countrys enormous resources, Nigeria found herself in the present state of insecurity and underdevelopment.
Governor Kwankwaso expressed shock that teenage girls were used in suicide bombing and criminal activities.
He called for reliable and sustainable ways in handling insurgency in the country and the need for a marshal plan to end it once and for all.
There is, of course, a correlation between poverty, illiteracy and unemployment and insurgency in North East, something the federal government always denied, but it has to agree as the whole world is of the view that they are correlated, he said.
Kwankwaso also expressed concern over the ruthlessness on the part of Mr President in dealing with opponents, saying the impeachment threat on the Nasarawa State governor, impeachment of Murtala Nyako, rigging of Ekiti election and attempt to rig Osun election were all dangerous signals that will push the country deeper into more crisis.
On the appointment of the new Inspector General of Police, IGP, Sulaiman Abba, Kwankwaso expected of him a shift from the past where police officers aligned themselves with politicians than being professionals.
He expressed optimism about the new IGP considering his wealth of experience in the service while maintaining that the present state of insecurity in the country requires the best approach.
