I Don’t Visit Abuja for Solutions to Insecurity – Yahaya Bello
Nwolu Obiajulu

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has said he does not visit ‘Abuja’ for solutions to tackle the security challenges the state is battling with including the farmer-herder clashes prevalent in several parts of the country.

He disclosed this when he appeared on Channels Television’sSunrise Daily’ programme.

Governor Bello said his government collaborates with security apparatus in the state to analyse intelligence to proactively tackle security challenges.

He said, “The Nigeria Police that are in the country today are the same in Kogi State. The Army in the country are the same in Kogi State. All the law enforcement agencies we have in the country today are exactly what I have in Kogi State.

“We are corroborating, the commissioner of police, my director (of) DSS, my Army commander, my naval commander, civil defence commander, we are corroborating and they are relating very well with the citizens, they connected to the people and leadership at all levels are doing their best starting from the community leaders, ward leaders, the local government chairmen and leaders, youth leaders, market leaders, farmers and what have you. We are corroborating very well.

“So, when they provide such information, we act on it, we don’t pay lip service, we don’t pass buck, we don’t visit Abuja for solutions at all times. I don’t think there is any day I have ever visited Abuja for any solution. What I do is to sit down here (Kogi) and do my job.”

Recently, security challenges have been on the increase in some parts of the country, especially in the South-West region. There have been alleged cases of sundry crimes such as kidnapping, rape, killing, amongst others by herdsmen.

The northern part of the country is equally bedevilled by renewed attacks by bandits.
