State Of Emergency cannot solve Nigeria’s security problems – Masari

By Felix Pogus

Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, has said that the declaration of a state of emergency on security cannot solve the myriads of challenges facing the country.

Briefing journalists on Thursday, April 29, 2021, after meeting with the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Professor Ibrahim Gambari at the State House in Abuja, Masari said the military is over stretched.

“It cannot because how can state of emergency solve the problem? You have a situation where the military are in all the states of the federation, then you ask yourself, how many do we have?” he said.

“Are we not overstretching them? So the reality is the responsibility of securing this country is ours, all of us. We have a role to play, and we must play it for the sake of the country and for the sake of our children and grandchildren, not for the sake of the persons that in office.

“I think we better be serious about this issue of security. If you say set up state of emergency, what do you do? We are having the same people, the same security agencies, the same capacities, and the same resources. So what are we talking about?”
