Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed has said that President wants to tackle insecurity but lacks the support to effectively fight insecurity.
Speaking in Bauchi while addressing the 20 local government chairmen in the State on Friday, Governor Bala offered to collaborate with the Federal Government to manage the situation, noting that one of the local government areas in the State was recently attacked by bandits.
He urged the council chairmen to ensure they secured their communities as he stated that it is the first duty of the federal government to secure the country, “It is unacceptable for the Federal Government to continue to say they cannot secure this country, our communities.
The Governor added that Nigeria has the required resources to manage the security challenges across that country, but there must be a collective effort.
“I really pity our father, the President, and Commander-in-Chief. Because he really wants to do it, but he has not been supported.
“I as a Governor, head of a sub-national administration, I’m ready to work with the Federal Government to make sure we secure our state and country. It is our collective responsibility.” He stated.
