How to tackle insecurity in Nigeria – Ganduje

The governor of Kano State, Abdulahi Umar Ganduje, yesterday asked the federal government to address poverty, unemployment, environmental degradation, injustice, corruption, porous borders and small arms proliferation in order to tackle insecurity.  

He stated this while featuring as the guest lecturer during the 2022 lecture of the University of Ibadan Alumni Association in Ibadan.  

The governor said the formulation and effective implementation of policies, coupled with programmes capable of addressing the root causes of insecurity in Nigeria, were crucial.  

“In Nigeria, cases that border on insecurity have most often been compromised. Thus, the law is no longer acting as a deterrent.

“Our law enforcement agencies must, therefore, be incorruptible and fair. To ensure all these, there must be incentives, good conditions of service and social security,” he said.  

He added that the recent law branding kidnapping as an act of terrorism was the right step in the right direction.
