Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has challenged all state governors in Nigeria to take responsibility for security of their respective states.
He said governors should not expect President Muhammadu Buhari to hold an AK-47 rifle or be in every state of the country to secure lives and property.
The governor stated this on Friday in Abuja at his Second Annual GYB Seminar for Nigeria’s Political and Crime Editors and Correspondents.
According to him: “I’m not a governor that will expect the President to secure my state,” Bello said.

“I refused to politicize insecurity. Buhari is a man who loves truth and reality. I’ll let you know that the President loves this country.
“This insecurity isn’t a thing of the President though we should not pass the buck because that is why we came on board. It’s a successive failure of various administrations.
“The President will not sit in the Villa and hold an AK-47 to come and secure my schools and roads.

“Some of these crimes that we see today are more than what we see on the surface. I will never come out here and point out the flaws. Whatever I observe, in terms of loopholes and lapses, it’s between myself and the President to let him know.
“I will never be that governor who will come out and say that the President didn’t secure my schools and roads.”
