El-Rufai says Nigeria consists of 2 countries; the backward North similar to Afghanistan and a developing South

“Nigeria consists of two countries; there is a backward, less educated and unhealthy northern Nigeria, and a developing, largely educated and healthy southern Nigeria,” Governor El-Rufai said in his speech at the ‘Awakening the Arewa Spirit’ a Northern Youth Summit organised by Northern Hibiscus Initiative.

“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,” El-Rufai added. Naija Buzz News published a report on Governor El-Rufai’s statement at the event.
