Kano Has Over 7 Million Poor People-Ibrahim Ado Kurawa

A Nigerian based Researcher Malam Ibrahim Ado Kurawa has said Kano has 7.22 Million poor people together with Jigawa.

Malam Ibrahim Ado Kurawa made the statement in his verified Facebook page

According to Kurawa said Kano the home of NEPU, the base that provided the NPC with resources to form national government in the first republic.

Kano is the home of the first textile industry in Nigeria. Now Kano has 7.22million poor people along with Jigawa with its 5.05million poor they contribute 15% of Nigeria’s poor people with less than 3% of the National Economy.

Kano is now number 9 in GDP from number 2 after. Its GDP is US$13.3 behind Lagos, Rivers, Delta, Oyo, Imo, Edo, Akwa Ibom and Ogun.

Yet the elite don’t care to even discuss the way out.

According to Malam Kurawa, the problem is that the elite in Kano have been compromised.

a) Most of the politicians are morally bankrupt and want to be in every government so they keep  cross carpeting from one party to the other.

b) The Ulama who are supposed to be the conscience of the society have been compromised since when the politicians appointed unqualified persons as Religious Advisors and the Ulama accepted which is very tragic.

c) The traditional ruling class has been destroyed because of internal jealousies and hatred and they allowed someone who said Shehu Danfodio did Islamic coup so he too is free to do what he likes.
d) Civil society is weak.

Kurawa provided ways out of the problem:
1) some people must lead and take the bull by the horn. They must sacrifice. There’s no success without sacrifice.

2) It must never be business as usual. No ambitious politician should be supported there must be terms of engagement with specific steps and milestones. All the Govs from 1999 to date were perhaps “saints” before they entered the Govt House. So the system of leadership recruitment must change.
3) Mobilization must be from the grass root not elitist. From ground zero.
4) People must be sensitized according to clusters and cells.
