Usman Yusuf says 'Our People Are Not Asking For Lagos-Calabar Highway Where You Spent N15.6Trn'

Professor Usman Yusuf, a former CEO of the National Health Insurance Scheme, contended that Nigerians, particularly those in the North, place a higher priority on vital security measures than on large-scale infrastructure projects like the N15.6 trillion Lagos-Calabar highway, which took up a sizable amount of the country’s budget.

He said that large-scale infrastructure projects should not take precedence over the pressing need for basic security to shield civilians from persistent threats and bandit kidnappings.

Yusuf emphasized the seriousness of the situation by pointing out the frequent tragedies of mass student abductions, which have unfortunately become commonplace.

He criticized the government’s failure to effectively rescue abducted students as indicative of a broader security breakdown in the region.

According to him, the inability to address these security challenges highlights a significant flaw in governance priorities, as citizens continue to face the pervasive menace of violence and insecurity.

He said in an interview with Arise TV, ”There are three main problems we see in the North, pervasive insecurity, excruciating poverty, and hunger in the land. The state and federal government have failed to secure our people for them to go to their farms, they are not asking for much.

Our people are not asking for Lagos-Calabar highway where you spent N15.6Trn. 56% of the National Budget was spent on that project while our people are being taking hostages every time by Bandits. There is mass abduction of students and getting them out has been no success, it’s a failure.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
