The National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has come out to say that Nigeria is competing with armed bandits and armed robbers to recruit army of unemployed youths in the country.

He recently revealed this during his 12th colloquium organized in Kano State to mark his 69th birthday celebration.

According to him, the government should do everything within its power to recruit the youths in large numbers into the security and agricultural sector, so they can defend and feed the nation.

Tinubu added that he and the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje represent the unity, peace and harmony of the country.

His words, “Why are we in Kano for this colloquium? Why? It is because there is a Fulani man, a herder man who gave his daughter to a family of Yoruba man. Dan Fulani, Dan Yoruba. And some people are agitating wrongly and I say if the colleague can encourage and support me to go and spend a couple of days with my brother and in-law in Kano and demonstrate that he has not quarreled with me and has not seceded from Nigeria. I don’t need a passport or visa to get to Kano, so maybe others would have peace of conscience and live in peace and harmony. That is what Ganduje and I are representing to show to Nigerians. And that is the purpose of the colloquium.”

“We are able to show Nigerian together that the Fulani man and Yoruba man can show the entire nation that perseverance, great understanding is a common blood that is flowing in our veins.”

“Part of the reasons why herdsmen are moving round is because of extreme climate change. This is not harmattan period.”

“We better spend our economy and make sure we tune our economy programmes.”

“This is the time to put stimulus expenditure in place, this is no more time for austerity. This is not the time to constrain the economy but the time to create the opportunity.”

“If you hear America spending 1.9 trillion and they are not looking back and they are still asking for three trillions for infrastructures, for renewal and creating of jobs and your own unemployment rate is at 33 per cent. And you ask us to keep on fasting, we are fasting no more. The one we are fasting spiritually is voluntarily. We have been fasting since many years.”

“I hope the National Assembly, the President himself would not pay attention to austerity.”

“Sovereignty is that of Nigeria and it is only the federal government that has that sovereign power and most use it for the benefit and development of Nigeria.”

“It is time, we are under policed and we are competing with armed robbers and bandits to recruits from the youths who are unemployed. 33 per cent unemployed. Recruit 50 million youths into the army and various security agencies. Take them away from their recruitment source. What they would eat is growing here, you create demand and consumption.”

“Don’t talk about illiteracy, anybody who can own gun, cock gun and can shoot is technically competent to repair a tractor in the farm. Not when you are computer literate that you can be technically competent. Those who are working on sugar cane farms, can do so many other things like horticulture. We can create the jobs.”
