According to report reaching oyogist.com, the Nigerian state Governors have reportedly lamented the high rate of insecurity in the country, saying it’s a major challenge which needs to be tackled by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
This was made known by the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, who also doubles as the Governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi, during a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari. He noted that security, economy, vaccines management and the general outlook for 2021 were issues bothering him and his fellow Governors.
“I believe there is a whole range of strategies that he (Buhari) is putting in place in order to address that. I have also expressed to him the commitment of governors to step up to the plate, both in terms of providing support for our security agencies and also sensitising our population as well as addressing the causes of some of these crimes in our states.
“So, it is a partnership. He is our Commander-in-Chief, we are his field commanders and insecurity is ravaging the entire land.
“So, we all have to do whatever we can to reduce insecurity and to work in collaboration with the Federal Government.”
