ZAMFARA SCHOOL ABDUCTION: Empower States To Control Internal Security – Atiku

Share This

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Mr. Atiku Abubakar, has called on the Federal Government to give states the right to control their internal security.



Mr. Abubakar stated this while reacting to the abduction of young girls from Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State.

The former Vice President said the call has become a necessity as it has become obvious that states cannot provide security of life and property in their domain, without given the control over internal security.

Mr. Abubakar who expressed grief over the abduction of the school children said “I have had a phone conversation with the Governor of Zamfara, Bello Matawalle, and I am informed that his government is doing everything in its power to secure the release of the abducted students.

“I have previously made recommendations on how our beloved nation can defeat enemies of the state and win the war on terror, and I stand by those suggestions.

“However, right now, all hands must be on deck to support the Zamfara state government in securing the release of those abducted.

“The Federal Government cannot expect the states to provide security of life and property in their domain, without giving them control over internal security. This is now a necessity.”

The former Vice President therefore called on the National and State Assemblies to begin the process of constitutional and legal reforms that will make this a reality.

He stated that the Legislature must take the lead, as it seems the Executive may not be able to provide the needed leadership on this issue.

He sympathized with the families of the abducted children and most especially, the state Governor, Matawalle, pledging to help in any way possible to ensure the release of the girls
