Nigerians Under investment in education is the cause insecurity — Buhari

President Buhari blamed the insecurity menace ravaging the country on under investment in the education and healthcare sector as he received a delegation from Adamawa State led by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri at the State House in Abuja.

The President in his speech at the meeting yesterday August 8, said they are doing their best to address the issue at the federal level and also pleaded with State and Local governments to do their part.

“Many of the issues confronting our nation today, especially in the areas of insecurity and corruption, are directly or indirectly linked to the decades of under investment in education and healthcare.

“At the federal level, we are doing our best to address these issues. But the Federal Government cannot do it alone. We need the State and Local Governments to do their part. This is not about politics. It is the reality.

“Today, majority of Nigerians are below 20 years old. And it is projected that our population growth rate will remain amongst the fastest in the world. This means any plans we have today must take into account, the needs of tomorrow,” Buhari said.
