Boko Haram:Governors demand Special Security Intervention Fund

With the unabated violence and insecurity in some states across the country, the Nigerian Governors Forum has called for the creation of a Special Security Intervention Fund to assist affected states in tackling the challenge.

The governors made the plea after a late night meeting on Sunday in Abuja, saying the intervention fund is ‘essential’.

The chairman of the forum and governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, after the meeting that lasted over four hours, noted that the introduction of state police is one strategy that should help in combating the rising insecurity in the country.

The forum strongly condemned the current spate of insecurity and violence in the nation.

The meeting which focused on the issue of insecurity also reached the resolution that the forum will soon organise a conference on security.

The governors also demanded for a multi-dimensional approach to security issues to address the spate of insecurity and violence in the country.

    Without any ambiquity, this looters governors are directly or indirectly inviting the military to take over from them bcos of their insensitivity to miriads of problem facing nigerians but asking  for more money which is highly provoking and annoying.

    To say the list, what have they done with their security votes? They are the ones prolonging the security situation in the country, if they do their jobs as chief security officers of their states there would be relative peace, rather they prefer out right siphoning of the state security votes.

    BY DEMANDING SUCH MONEY YOU ARE NOT HELPING JONATHAN. I WILL PUT IT TO THE GOVERNOR THAT THE INSECURITY IS INSTIGATED BY THEM TO CALL FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF SUCH FUNDS. ROTIMI THIS IS A SHAME THAT YOU SHOULD DO THIS THING TO YOUR OWN BROTHER.

    But there is security vote already and what have you done with it?

  • emilo

    I vehemently disagree with the governors. It then means that they are part of our problem. What about the heavy security votes at their disposal? Rotimi Amaechi, Rochas Okorocha, Adams Oshiomhole, Raji Fashola – I DON’T LIKE THIS AT ALL
