Kogi Govt To Tackle Insecurity

The Kogi State Government has stated that it is committed to tackling insecurity in the state and neighbouring communities, News About Nigeria reports. 

The Governor, Usman Ododo, made this known while playing host to the leadership of Ekiti State University, the Ado-Ekiti EKSU Alumni Association Worldwide, led by the Global President, Engr. Dipo Bamisaye, at his residence in Okenne, Kogi State.

He noted that the level of insecurity in the country has become a threat to human existence and would affect generations yet unborn.

He maintained that his government will not stay idle and allow the situation to degenerate to a level of disrepair and continuous threat, adding that his government will strategise and work with relevant security agencies and stakeholders in order to make the roads and commuters safe.

“We cannot continue to fold our arms and allow the situation to degenerate to a level of disrepair and continuous threat.”

“The ugly trend has to be stopped, as we must develop strategies and work with relevant security agencies and stakeholders in order to make the roads and commuters safe,” he stated.

Ododo stated that there is a need for urgent solutions and called for combined efforts to curb rampant kidnappings, abductions, and other criminal issues on the nation’s highways.

The governor, who acknowledged the topic of their lecture, “Interrogating the Place of Information Gathering and Intelligence Sharing in the Security Architecture, Management of a Multi-Bordered Confluence State,”  emphasised the need for neighbouring states on the road networks like Ekiti, Ondo, Edo, Nasarawa, Enugu, Anambra, Benue, Niger, FCT, and Kwara to form a common front to confront the menace headlong.
