Senator Shehu Sani has condemned the special treatment given to repentant bandits than the Nigerian youths serving under the N-Power scheme. According to him, when you give N30,000 to N-Power volunteers and you give houses, shops and farmlands to repentant miscreants, the former will join the latter.
He made this statement on his official handle after the Katsina Government promised to offer bandits farmlands, market stores and houses. “lt would only embolden the bandits, encourage others to join and further escalate and worsen the situation in the north west and north central”, he said.
