Politicians are fueling insecurity in the country – Former Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung. Former Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung has accused political elites of being responsible for the increased insecurity, mutual suspicion, hatred and mistrust among Nigerians.
Dalung made the claim while speaking at the first National Conference of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Bauchi State chapter, with the theme “Insecurity, Economic Growth and Governance Triangle: Nigeria in Focus” held in Bauchi.
