Zamfara Abduction: Give States Control Of Their Security, Atiku Tells FG

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has said that it is now a necessity that the Federal Government give states control of their own security, an option he said would help win the war on terror.

He mentioned this on Friday on in a statement he titled: States Need to be Empowered to Control Their Internal Security.

While reacting to the latest abduction of 317 female students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State on Friday, the former vice president said the national and state assemblies should commence the legal process of constituting state police, asking the legislature to take the lead as he perceives the executive may not be able to provide the needed leadership in achieving the realization of the state police.

“I have previously made recommendations on how our beloved nation can defeat enemies of the state and win the war on terror, and I stand by those suggestions.

“The Nigeria Government cannot expect the states to provide security of life and property in their domain, without giving them control over internal security. This is now a necessity.

“Thus, I call on the National and State Assemblies to begin the process of constitutional and legal reforms that will make this a reality. The Legislature must take the lead, as it seems the Executive may not be able to provide the needed leadership on this issue,” he stated.

He, however called on concerned bodies to support the state in securing the release of the abducted school girls.

“However, right now, all hands must be on deck to support the Zamfara state government in securing the release of those abducted.

“My heart goes out to the families of the abducted children, and my right hand of fellowship is extended to Governor Matawalle, to help in any way possible, he said.
