Corrupt governance responsible for insecurity, banditry in North — VP Shettima

Vice President Kashim Shettima asserted that the crises of insecurity and banditry in the Northern part of the country are attributed to corrupt governance.

Shettima conveyed this message during the 10th Annual Sir Ahmadu Bello Foundation lecture and award in Maiduguri, hosted by Borno State Governor, Prof Babagana Umara Zulum.

Represented by his special adviser on Political Affairs, Hakeem-Baba Ahmed, the vice president emphasized the departure from the legacy of accountability, fairness, and probity set by Sardauna, identifying corruption as a fundamental cause of insecurity.

Governor Zulum echoed these sentiments, blaming corruption for the country’s governance challenges and urging leaders to prioritize good governance.

According to him, the reason why Sardauna is being glorified is the value of teamwork, resilience and commitment to the provision of qualitative education, agriculture, and infrastructural development.

The chairman of Northern Governors Forum, Governor Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya noted that good governance is the only way out of the insecurity in the region and the country as a whole.

Emeritus professor Umaru Shehu, Aisha Muhammed Nahuce, Professor Deborah Eniho and Adams David Baiki were among those that were awarded by the foundation.
