Nigeria Should Expect Bigger Boko Haram Bombings If The North East Don't Get More Money From The Budget - Serving Northern Senator
A former Governor and serving Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Mr. Buka Abba Ibrahim has openely stated that the Nigerian state should increase the amount of funds allocated to the Northeast or risk more bombings by Boko Haram. Complaining about the amount budgeted for the Northeast by the Federal Government, Ibrahim was qouted as saying “Other geo-political zones got N79 billion or N80 billion. But the North-East has only N50 billion; a difference of N30 billion. Go and check the budget figures
or ask the Director-General Budget Office.”
He then issued the threat by saying “Boko Haram is a product of poverty. It is a product of unhappiness. We are unhappy with Nigeria. Unless something is done to address it, Nigeria should expect bigger Boko Haram insurgency, Insha Allah."
