North Will Destroy Itself If… – Emir Sanusi

Emir of , , has stated that the North needs to work on its development or risk destroying itself

Emir Sanusi also said  that there are lots of issues facing the Northern region that the elders should not be happy about.

Speaking on Monday in during an event to commemorate the 60th birthday celebration of governor of the state, , Sanusi said that real development will continue to elude the North except the leaders rise up and do the right thing.

He said, “The real change in the North will come from those considered mad people because you look around and say if this is the way we have been doing things, and this is where we have ended up, maybe we need to do things differently.

“If the North does not change, it will destroy itself. The country is moving on. If we don’t listen, there would be a day when there would be a constitutional amendment that addresses these issues of quota system and federal character.

“The rest of the country cannot be investing, educating its children, producing graduates and then they watch us, they ’t get jobs because they come from the wrong state, when we have not invested in the future of our own children.

“You cannot be happy about 87 per cent of poverty in being in the North. You can’t be happy with millions of Northern out-of-school children. You can’t be happy with nine states in the North contributing almost 50 per cent of the entire malnutrition burden in the country.

“You can’t be happy with the problem. You can’t be happy with all the issues.”
