- Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state has blamed the rise of Boko Haram insurgence on poverty among Muslims in the North-east part of Nigeria

- Aregbesola said it is shameful that Muslims are being paid paltry money to bomb themselves

- The governor called on Muslims to tackle poverty so as to stop the growth of terrorism in the North

The governor of the state of Osun, Governor Rauf Aregbesola has blamed poverty as the reason behind Boko Haram insurgeny in Nigeria.

According to Daily post, Governor Aregbesola averred that it is shameful for every Muslim to hear that a Muslim can accept N200 to bomb herself and other people.

Recall that an 18-year old Boko Haram terrorist who was recently arrested in Borno state claimed to have been paid N200 to blow herself and others up.

Aregbesola calls on Muslims to eradicate poverty to avoid being used by terrorists

Aregbesola made the call during a gathering of Muslims which was led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III Osogbo, Osun state.

Aregbesola said: “It is disappointing to hear that Muslims are being asked to kill for paltry sum as low as N200.

“What is the problem with us Muslims. Why is poverty afflicting us so terribly that we can now accept just any amount to kill ourselves?

“This should by now pose a serious challenge to us. And we must set up an organisation and saddle it with the responsibility of how to eradicate this grinding poverty.

“Unless we are not worried by the spate of this economic condition, by now we must develop capacity and strategy to end the poverty.

“Let the truth be told: Religion is not the cause of Boko Haram insurgency but extreme poverty is the root cause. Let us create an organisation to tackle and eradicate poverty now. This is a challenge to the entire Muslim Ummah.”

Aregbesola called on Muslims to defeat poverty so the nation can defeat Boko Haram which he said is being fueled by overwhelming poverty in the North-East.

Also, speaking at the programme was Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’adu who commended Governor Aregbesola on his effort to develop the state of Osun despite the economic situation of Nigeria.

The Sultan said: “I must acknowledge your commitment in promoting unity among the various religious organisations in the state as this is in line with our cardinal objective of ensuring a peaceful nation.

“We have not in any way closed our eyes to your administration’s determination in making things happen even in the face of the present realities of the nation’s economy.”

Meanwhile, a team of German oncologists who came for a three-day visit to Osun state on cancer management and training of Primary Health Care workers on early detection and awareness of cancer has promised to collaborate with the state government to stem the scourge of the deadly disease in the state.

The German oncologists, who commended Governor Rauf Aregbesola for showing serious concern and tackling the cancer disease headlong, said that they were ready to support the state government on capacity building for the medical personnel at the Primary Health Centres on early detection, awareness and treatment of cancer patients.
