Ali Ndume recently revealed this in Birnin Kebbi on Thursday during a courtesy visit to Gov. Atiku Bagudu, on the sideline of the committee’s oversight function to the state.
According to him, he is very impressed with how the Nigerian army is handling the security situation in the country amid the constant insurgency challenges in the North -East, and issues of banditry in the North- West.
He added that more work needs to be done to guarantee a peaceful Nigeria for citizens and leaders.
His words, “The army have some programmes we want to look at, and at the same time interact with the governor and army on how we can solve the insecurity challenges before they get out hand in the state.”
“We are dealing with the insurgency challenges in the North -East and issues of banditry in the North- West now and herdsmen – farmers’ clashes, tribal and religious clashes in the North- Central.
“From our findings, the Nigerian army is engaged in 33 states across the country.”
“I am impressed with the way you are handling the security situation in the state. We need you to collaborate with Sokoto, Zamfara and Katsina states on monitoring efforts, in addition to neighbouring countries, to address the likelihood of spill over of insecurity from those states.”
“For example, if you interact with some of those involved in banditry, they will tell you horror tales about how they were being dispossessed, how they don’t have water and most of these issues are true.
“There is the need to encourage and emulate President Muhammadu Buhari‘s example of directing that those people living in IDPs should be empowered by allowing them to go back into economic activities.
“I recall when President Buhari directed that N12 billion be given to IDPs in seven states of Adamawa, Taraba, Benue, Yobe, Zamfara, Borno and Plateau to enable them go back to their normal lives.”
