FFK replies El-Rufai’s Yahoo Yahoo comment, says ”Northerners have looted Nigeria’s treasury more than any other group of Nigerians”


Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the statement made by Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, over the weekend.  Governor El-Rufai who was speaking at the Northern Youth summit organized by Northern Hibiscus Initiative in Kaduna on Saturday July 6th, said although Northern Nigeria is the most backward and uneducated region in Nigeria, it is a thing of pride to say that Northerners are rarely arrested for Yahoo Yahoo and other financial crimes. Nigeria consists of two countries; there is a backward, less educated and unhealthy northern Nigeria, and a developing, largely educated and healthy southern Nigeria.  We have to speak the truth to ourselves and ask why is it that northern Nigeria has development indicators similar to Afghanistan, a country still at war?We have the largest number of poor people in the world, most of them in northern Nigeria. Nigeria also has the largest number of out of school children, virtually all of them in Northern Nigeria.We are being considered as the parasite of the federal economy, even though, that is not entirely true. Because northern Nigeria still feeds the nation. The richest business man in Nigeria is still Aliko Dangote, not someone from Southern Nigeria, thank God for that.So, we still have a lot to be proud of. We should be proud of our culture and tradition, as well as unity. You hardly can find someone from northern Nigeria convicted of 419 or being a Yahoo boy. That is something we should be proud of.We are generally considered to be more honest and less corrupt than other Nigerians. That is something we should be proud of'' he said Reacting via his Twitter handle, FFK wrote''Put the EFCC, the Police and DSS in the hands of Southerners and see what happens. Northerners have looted the treasury over the last 59 years of our nation's existence more than ANY other group of Nigerians. The post FFK replies El-Rufai’s Yahoo Yahoo comment, says ”Northerners have looted Nigeria’s treasury more than any other group of Nigerians” appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
