According to the statistics, around 30% of school-age children in the North-East region are out of school as a result of the security situation in that part of the country.

nigerian_childrenThe former Commandant, Infantry Corps Centre, Jaji, Major-General Mohammed Isa (rtd), who was controversially retired from the Army after the last year’s bombings at the Army formation in Jaji, stated the insecurity in that part of the country had discouraged investors from investing in the country.

Speaking yesterday in Kaduna on the issue, he also claimed that no investors would invest in a place where there is insecurity of lives and property.

Another speaker, NLC Vice President Comrade Issa Aremu, decried what he described as lack of ideological base for the nation’s political parties, noting that the Second Republic political parties were more focused because of their tangible programmes for the development of the country.

In his paper entitled ‘Nigeria’s Economy in the 21st Century: A Determinant for 2015 Elections,’ Aremu also lamented that the current disagreement within the parties was not based on issues that could lead to the development of the country.

As he put it, “the disagreement is not about bad roads, electricity, closed factories or massive unemployment.”
