It Would Be Hard For Any Politician To Campaign For Election In 2023, It Further Claimed
As kidnapping and Boko Haram insurgence continue to sweep throughout the northern part of Nigeria, a chilling report is crippling out of the 19 northern states.
According to a senior journalist in the country, governors in the northern states of Nigeria now govern their people from the federal capital territory, Abuja over fear of being ambushed in the government house.
The governors only return to their states whenever there is serious business or need to engage the media.
According to the journalist who does not want his name to be in the public domain, the governors also accused the federal government of not doing enough to secure the northern region.
The Niger State Government on Thursday blamed the government for not doing what’s necessary to help the state in protecting the 27 understudies of Government Science School, Kagara and 15 others, crooks grabbed from the school last Wednesday.
Lead representative Sani Bello, while playing host to Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu, who paid him a compassionate visit in Minna, the state capital said the government has left the state to bear all the monetary duties of the frailty in the state.
He said albeit the national government sent an assignment and conveyed 300 uproar cops in the state to help with the salvage activities, there was no monetary help from the government.
As indicated by him, the central government has never really helped in getting the arrival of the people in question.
He said: “All in all, where is the help? Right now we have not seen any government upheld here since this occurrence happened. Indeed, we had an appointment that came to sympathize with us, however we are left to ourselves.
“With or with no help, the state government has just made a guarantee to individuals of the state to safeguard the snatched schoolchildren and, subsequently, we will do all that could be within reach to guarantee their delivery safely.
“We will utilize whatever means and assets accessible to ensure the kids get back securely.
Years back an intelligent report by one of the leading media houses in Nigeria was stumbled. The report indicated that from the north that young people were preparing for zaranchi haram, nobody gave a heed.
The governors are overwhelmed on the seemingly ‘go, we are coming behind you’ attitude on the side of the FG.
The governors want the attacks by different terrorist groups in the north to be arrested or reduced so as to start preparing for the 2023 elections.
Now what is happening in the north is beyond criminality and banditry. It would be hard for any politician to campaign for election in 2023.
Almost all the state governors from the north stay 5 days a week in Abuja. A young graduate from the north told the journalist ‘wallahi zamu basu gwudu tillas (By God, we will give them tillas)! Tillas is elder brother of dolee (must), restructure or not, the youth are angry.
