Sanusi further stated that the North would destroy itself if it does not address the challenges of poverty, millions of out of school children, malnutrition, a drug problem, and the Boko Haram insurgency.

The Emir stated that no leader of the North could afford to be happy in the face of the multifarious challenges confronting the region.

While lamenting that 87 percent of poverty in Nigeria is in the region with millions of children out of school, the monarch said nine states in the North contribute almost 50 percent of the entire malnutrition burden in Nigeria.

He, therefore, urged leaders of the region to move away from doing things the old way, which had produced the same negative results but should invest in education, nutrition, and primary healthcare.
