Gov Masari Explains Why State Of Emergency Can’t Solve Nigeria’s Security Problems

Published

Just two days after the House of Representatives asked president Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency on the security sector, the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari has insisted that the declaration cannot solve Nigeria’s challenges because the military is overstretched.

Disclosing this while briefing newsmen in Abuja after meeting with Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, at the State House, Masari said “It cannot because how can a state of emergency solve the problem? You have a situation where the military is in all the states of the federation, then you ask yourself, how many do we have?

The governor added “Are we not overstretching them? So the reality is the responsibility of securing this country is ours, all of us.

Masari said further that “We have a role to play, and we must play it for the sake of the country and for the sake of our children and grandchildren, not for the sake of the persons that in office.

Questioning the military capacity in handling the state of insecurity in the country, Masari said “I think we better be serious about this issue of security. If you say set up a state of emergency, what do you do? We’re having the same people, the same security agencies, the same capacities, and the same resources. So what are we talking about?”

Meanwhile, following an ongoing attack by Boko Haram militants in Yobe State, residents of Kanamma in Yunusari Local Government Area are currently taking refuge in the bush as they fled their homes.

This is coming barely 24 hours after reports claimed that the Boko Haram spiritual leader, Abubakar Shekau had appointed a new War Commander.
