Babangida Aliyu: Banditry, the insurgency will not end without education

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told a group within the party that it has no constitutional power to suspend a former governor of Niger State and member of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu.

Former governor of Niger State, Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, has said banditry and insurgency would not end if a large chunk of Nigerians remained uneducated.

Speaking in Abuja at the 2021 Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation 2021 scholars’ Mentorship Forum, Aliyu said lack of knowledge on how to provide information to relevant authorities by communities on criminals passing through their communities had limited intelligence gathering.

If we don’t educate our population, Boko Haram, banditry will never end because there will be people willing to fight for their rights and they see that right in terms of the fighting because you are wearing the cloth.

Aliyu, who is also the Chairman, Board of Trustee of the foundation, said since the foundation’s inception to provide scholarships to indigent students in the north, it had granted scholarships to 800 students.
