Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has identified nepotism in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration as the major cause of insecurity in the country.
Speaking to journalists on Thursday, Mohammed said Buhari gives too much attention to the detriment of others.
The governor also said that the deteriorating economy which had led to widespread poverty was as a result of loss of ideas by the Buhari-led Federal Government.
Mohammed added that there was truth in the assertion by the Southern governors who called for restructuring over evident nepotism in Buhari;s administration.
He said, “If you are not fair and equitable in your administration, in your management, if there is nepotism, only one section is given positions in government; then what the southern governors said is true. Some people are given too much attention to the detriment of others.
“What we know in this country, as a federation, there is always a balance in terms of appointments of federal offices, in terms of appointments even at the local level because if you don’t practise fairness at the top, then you cannot get it at the lower level. And people will begin to think of self-actualisation, self-determination, and so on.

Mohammed, who stated that the FG has run out of ideas on how to grow the economy, added that the administration is know for trading blames.
“I think the Federal Government has lost ideas on how to grow the economy. They are just involved in a blame game. What they are best known for is blame game, always saying this and that,” he said.
