Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State said he and other governors were “handcuffed” to the security of lives and public property in their states.
The governor was speaking on Politics Today on Channels TV yesterday saying they did not have much power.
“I am frustrated in my state. Many governors are frustrated in their states. We are called chief security officers only in name, we have no control over coercive instruments of state… we are almost helpless – Gov Nasir El-Rufai on killings and insecurity. ” he said.
El-Rufai, who is currently in Dubai, continued: “We [the governors] have told the president and his vice president … there is a need for coordinated bombings to wipe out these bandits and the remnants of Boko Haram.”
