Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation, replies the Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on his comments over the weekend, that the Northern are the pride of Nigeria, despite the fact that they are most backward and uneducated in Nigeria yet the North is feeding the nation, producing its richest citizen, the Northerners are less involved in fraud and being more honest.

 

Recall that Mallam El-Rufai, over the weekend praised the Northerner, saying although Northern Nigeria is the most backward and uneducated region in Nigeria, yet it is a thing of pride to say that Northerners are rarely arrested for Yahoo Yahoo and other financial crimes.

 

He also quickly added the positives, some that may be controversial: the north feeding the nation, producing its richest citizen, the northerners less involved in fraud and being more honest 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.

 

But FFK while reacting to the comment via his Twitter handle @realffk, said Northerners have looted the treasury over the last 59 years of “our nation’s existence” more than any other group of Nigerians.

 

According to FFK, “the North is now the center for drug abuse, gender violence, banditry, kidnapping and terrorism”. I concur. It is also the center for pedophilia, racism, islamic fundamentalism, genocide, ethnic cleansing, mass murder, religious bigotry and the persecution of Christians.

 

He further added that “No-one from the north has ever been convicted of 419 or fraud”. 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 Nations existence more than ANY other group of Nigerians.
