Former lawmaker and national women leader of the National Progressive and Empowerment Initiative Amina Aliyu has said the rise in the population of Abuja can be traced to failure of governors to promote peace in their various states.
Speaking on the ethnic crisis in her home state, Nasarawa, Aliyu who represented Akwanga/Wamba Federal Constituency in the aborted third republic said: “They’re overloading Abuja. Upon every crisis people run into Abuja. Places like Nyanya, Mararaba, Kwali, Gwagwalada, Bwari, Kubwa are overcrowded because people are running away from crisis. This is not good. State governors should resolve crises in their states.”
She said the call by Rivers State Governor Rotimi Ameachi for the removal of Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is uncalled for saying “he is mixing politics with economy.”
