Governor Shettima Says Over 50m Northerners Live In Poverty

Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has revealed that over 50 million Nigerians of Northern extraction live in poverty. 



The governor also lamented that the region was faced with five most serious problems, which he enumerated to include low literacy, poverty, poor healthcare, unproductive population and bad economic position.


Gov Kashim Shettima of Borno State. Shettima, who is the Chairman, Northern Governors’ Forum, said he relied on recent research data released by experts, which indicated that of the 79.6 million Nigerians living in poverty, over 50 million of them, representing about 70 per cent, live in the 19 northern states of Nigeria.

So Shettima what have you done for 50,000 citizens of your people if 50m lives in poverty.

You guys are the problem we are having everywhere.

Everyone of you thinks of his family, how to chop, chop and chop and not considering the electorate that put you guys there.

"....50 million Nigerians of Northern extraction..."


If the North is claiming over 50million, what's the population of the whole country?


They should continue tweeking numbers for election purposes, one day, it will blow up in their ugly faces.

What makes a man remain poor is his inability to do something about his poverty, we have poor people everywhere, but your peoples own is evident because they refuse to get free from it, you provide them with education but they refuse, most hate civilization so would we continue to spend money on just them, when they are not interested in getting better, please make it easy for others as well so that those that need to would have a fighting chance out of poverty and wait how did you get your result

Don't mind them, that has been the case since 1960, yet we are still helping them, we reduced their cut off marks to 250 for common entrance and made that of the south east 500 just to make them go to school and encourage them, MBA, other parts of Nigeria at denied a chance to study medicine because of cut off marks were as their northern counterparts whose cut off marks are reduced still don't want to go to school, so please what is the need. Their people have been in power but have they helped them, all the stinkly rich people from their state can't raise foundations to help their people, they still rely on the government haba, abeg they should shift

That's their reason for sending the "dancing pythons" to the East
To create a similar feat of poverty!

How won't they be poor were one man who is a peasant farmer will go and marry 4 wives. Everything they do is just to marry.You have refused to train the girl child, you have refused to accept western education.we are here today in Nigeria bc of the north. Every grant coming to this country is sent to the north, still you want more. Nothing to the south. 50million?ok...you people keep them in perpetual darkness and poverty so that they become a willing tool. See how people struggle to make it in the south and you are talking about some people who you give, squanders it and refuse to stand. For how long. Leave us alone the north, we are tired of being the milk cow
