My Administration Will Not Politicize Security Issues - Bagudu Assures

Ismail Bayo, Birnin Kebbi

Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State at the weekend said his administration would not politicize security issues, rather more efforts will be made to secure the lives and properties of the people of the state.

He said" Security issues will not be given undue publicity. What we need are adequate planning, coordination, and cooperation.

" Security challenges in Kebbi State are spillovers from our neighbor, Zamfara State, and everything is being done to redress the obnoxious trend.

 In fact, President Muhammadu Buhari had supported us, he has recently given approval to us to take more proactive measures and he has done so".

He disclosed this in Zuru while addressing the newly elected Chairmen, Vice-Chairmen, and Councillors from Zuru, Sakaba, and Danko / Wasagu Local Governments.

The governor also urged the people of the state to shun rumour mongering, as well as spreading fake news which according to him was detrimental to the peace and security of the society.

According to him, fake news does nobody any good, but causes disharmony, as well as aggravates the already disturbing security situation in the country.

Bagudu further appealed to the people of the state to continue to appreciate the laudable efforts of the military and the various security agencies to combat insecurity.

He also called on them to always offer credible intelligence to the security agencies, with a view to nipping crimes and criminality in the bud.

Bagudu, who again congratulated the newly elected officials admonished them to uphold their oaths of office and run open administrations.

" You should hold monthly allocation meetings, provide the needs and aspirations of the electorate and offer assistance in accordance with the laws.

" You should also run all-inclusive governments and always remember that you were elected not because you are better than anybody, but by divine Providence.

" More women should be assisted and there are a lot of formidable challenges at the family levels, with women bearing the brunts," the governor, said.

He further advised them to listen to the yearnings of their people particularly the less privileged in the society.

Bagudu calls for understanding and cooperation from elected local Government officials as well as joining hands to deliver the dividends of democracy provided by the APC-led government. 

The Governor also expressed delight with the emergence of 16 women Councilors elected across the state.

Earlier, the Commissioner of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Hassan Muhammad Shalla told the elected officials of the 3 local Governments of the governor's visit to felicitate with them over their victory at the polls.

The APC Chairman of Zuru Local Government, Abubakar Aliyu, and the State House of Assembly member representing Danko Wasagu, Hon. Hamza Haliru while thanking the governor for the visit assured him of the total support and loyalty of politicians in the area.

Hon Hamza Haliru , the State House of Assembly member representing Danko Wasagu particularly appreciated what he described as the concerted effort of the governor to surmount the security challenge in the area.

He appealed to politicians and mischief makers to stop politicizing the security but rather join hands with Government to deal with it.
