Governor Nasir El-Rufai speaks at the Northern Youth Summit: very critical of Northern Nigeria
Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasiru El-Rufa’i, was unsparing in his assessment of Northern Nigeria on Saturday as he described the region as backward, uneducated and unhealthy.
He also quickly added the positives: the north feeding the nation, producing its richest citizen, the northerners less involved in fraud and the north being the most populous region.
El-Rufa’i gave this view during the Northern Youth Summit organized by Northern Hibiscus Initiative in Kaduna.
He said the northern region has made Nigeria a country of nations.
