Isa Yuguda, former governor of Bauchi, says President Muhammadu Buhari has done his best in tackling insecurity.

The former minister of aviation said this on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, on Monday, while adding that Buhari is not to blame for the surge in attacks across the country.

 

Yuguda said the security of states is not one of the main responsibilities of the president, and that governors swore to protect lives and property in their states.

 

He said governors have all the resources and sufficient personnel to tackle insecurity in their states.

 

 “Mr. President has done his best, everybody’s best is different. So I can say the president has done his best,” he said.

 

“And he has appointed actors to assist him to manage the country – they are also doing their best. It all depends on somebody’s assessments. As far as I’m concerned, the president has done his best.”

 

“Security issues are the babies of governors, not Mr President’s. If you see anything going wrong as far as security or insecurity is concerned, you hold the governors accountable.

 

 “They are sworn to protect lives and property. [For terrorism cases] you hold them responsible because they own the land.

 

“President does not have land, the president does not give CofO to the states and you don’t expect the president to go and secure their lands.

 

“Each governor has a brigade commander, each governor has a commissioner of police, each governor has a director of SSS, civil defence commandant and other paramilitaries directly dealing with the security of the state.

 

“I’m not exonerating the president as such, but when attacks happen, the governor down there should be queried for making matters deteriorate to that extent.”
