Nigerians Should Support Government To End Insecurity— Bau

Governor Bala Muhammad

Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed is soliciting the support of Nigerians for the Buhari administration in its quest to address security challenges bedevilling the country.

The Governor made the call while distributing 66 official vehicles to 20 local government council chairmen and 38 District Heads, on Thursday in Bauchi.

According to him, security is a collective responsibility that requires the contribution of all Nigerians if it is to end.

Mohammed said his administration had been working hard to leave a legacy of infrastructure, services and security not only in Bauchi State but the country at large.

“If I can produce drones in all the emirate councils where I can be monitoring from the comfort of my room, I would do that by the grace of God, so that we will know what is happening.

“I’m concerned with President Mohammadu Buhari because I know he wanted to do it but he’s not being supported.

“As a governor, I am ready to work with the Federal Government to secure our state and the country.

“It is our collective responsibility. We can not just abdicate that responsibility and part of this are to uphold the dignity of the people around us, especially traditional institutions, security agencies and the human capital that we have which are the civil servants, among others,” he said.

The governor said the state government distributed the vehicles sequel to a request by the Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwanu Suleiman-Adamu.

“Today; we are fulfilling that promise. We know how hard our local council chairmen have been working.

“In that regard, we decided to make them also benefit from the gesture, the state government bought vehicles for them as a token of appreciation for what they are doing in terms of local administration,” he said.

In his remarks, Suleiman-Adamu lauded the gesture, describing it as “historic.”

The royal father said that the gesture would remain indelible in their memories.

The government distributed 38 Toyota Camry cars to District Heads and 20 others to local council chairmen while eight utility vehicles were distributed to the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs and LGC area offices, respectively.
