Taraba State Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, asking him to return soldiers to the state for better security.

Addressing State House correspondents, the governor disclosed that soldiers had been withdrawn from his states to other parts of the country.

Ishaku, who said he was at the Villa to brief Buhari on the security situation in the state, called for the president’s support.

Responding to a question the specific support needed, he stated: “Security is sole prerogative of Mr. President, it is his assignment. We state governments rely on the federal government for the soldiers, the police and all the security agencies.

“Therefore, you need the presidential directives to be able to enhance the security in the states, particularly my state where some of the soldiers have been withdrawn to other areas in the country which we will need them, if possible, to come back so that we will feel more secure and continue to live in peace.”

The governor hinted that the anti-grazing law would come into effect in the state in January 2018, saying two panels had been set up to sensitize farmers and herdsmen on its benefits.

The governor said he believed the anti-grazing law would be the best thing for herdsmen and farmers in the state socially and economically.

He thanked Buhari for awarding the Mambilla hydro-power contract, describing it as “a very good project for the country as a whole, 3,050megawatts.”

The governor said Taraba had also achieved huge success in agriculture and education.
