Insecurity: We aren’t getting enough support from governors, says IGP

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has accused state governments of not giving enough support to the efforts of the Federal Government to tackle insecurity.

Mohammed spoke at the 2021 first quarterly meeting of Secretaries to State Governments of the 36 states and the FCT with the theme: ‘The role of Secretaries to the State Governments in strengthening sub-national level security architecture’.

He said the Federal Government has developed strategies to deal with some of the challenges and the support of state governments was necessary in order to achieve the desired results.

“At the federal level, we have developed a lot of strategies towards mitigating these issues but we don’t get the maximum cooperation that we supposed to get at the state level.

“We believe that secretaries to state governments should be conscious of security in their states because when they are able to galvanise all the stakeholders and different structures that are there that can enhance the security of their states, we will have relative peace in terms of insecurity.

“But if SSGs are not coordinating activities within the states, I don’t think anybody can do it,” he said.

But representatives of the state governments at the programme disagreed with Adamu.

Nigeria is currently experiencing a high level of insecurity and efforts made to bring the situation under control have not yielded the desired result.
