Nigeria Needs Help from Other Countries – Bagudu


Nigeria Needs Help from Other Countries – Bagudu
Atiku Bagudu, governor of Kebbi State and head of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), said that Nigeria needs help from other countries to deal with insecurity.

Bagudu, whose state is one that has been hurt by bandits, said that the country didn't have enough money to solve the problem and asked for help from other countries and regions.

He spoke on Thursday in Abuja at the 1st Interactive Policy Dialogue and Cultural Festival put on by Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, a Fulani socio-cultural association. The theme of the event was "The Future of Fulani Pastoralists in Nigeria."

"We need to put pressure on the leaders to get more resources to solve the problem," the governor said. We don't have a lot of money, so we need help from other countries and regions to find a solution."

Sheikh Ahmed Gumi, an Islamic scholar who spoke at the event, asked President Muhammadu Buhari to figure out how much money has been given to the Niger Delta region since the protests started and give the same amount to the Fulani before the end of his term in 2023.

He also asked the president to set up a Ministry of Nomadic Affairs, like the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, to deal with problems that affect nomads.

The cleric said, "The country is at war," and explained that making the ministry would help ease the tension, just like what happened in the Niger Delta.

Gumi said, "The kids who have been killing and kidnapping people opened their doors to us when we went to visit because they knew we were there to preach the gospel. All they want is to talk."

Send them people they respect to talk to them, and by the grace of God, they will listen, and this problem will be solved.
