- Nigeria is unattractive to investors according to Gbajabiamila
- The speaker said the current state of security in the country is responsible for this
- Going further, the speaker said Nigerian graduates can not compete in the current world economy
As Nigeria continues to witness insecurity across the country, speaker of the house of representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, says the current state of insecurity in the country has made Nigeria uninhabitable for citizens and unattractive to investors.
The speaker disclosed this on Saturday, July 25, at the public presentation of the updated legislative agenda of the house of representatives.
He said the war against insurgents has contributed to the many difficulties the country faces, The Cable reports.
“We are at war, fighting insurgents in the North-east who want to remake our world in the image of a medieval theocracy. Our education system is producing graduates who cannot compete in the 21st-century knowledge economy,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the murder of five humanitarian workers on Wednesday, July 22, in Borno state by Boko Haram still continues to generate fury and outrage from global bodies.
The United States Mission in Nigeria has expressed sadness over the development which it said came on the "backdrop of deteriorating conditions for millions of Nigerians."
In a statement by the US Mission on its website, the death of the humanitarian workers was described as a colossal loss for Nigeria and a huge setback in the fight against terrorism.
It would be recalled that on Wednesday, Boko Haram terrorists released the video showing the gruesome killing of the aid workers.
Their death came barely a month after they were abducted by their kidnappers in the northeast followed by the inability of the government to meet the $500,000 (N194million) ransom demanded by the terrorists.
Legit.ng had also reported that the federal government says the spate of attacks in Southern Kaduna is more complicated than many critics of the government are willing to admit.
This was made known in a statement issued by the presidency on Tuesday, July 15, as killing in the northern state continues to generate concern.
Presidency said Kaduna enjoys "comprehensive security deployments" from the troops of the Nigerian Army and Air Force but despite that, the insecurity still persists suggesting that there is more to the attacks than what people may imagine.
