Following the press conference held by the Peoples Democratic Party on Monday, decrying the level of insecurity in the country and demanding that the federal government tackle the issues headlong, Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has asked the opposition party to hold state governments, including those headed by members of the party, accountable for the security challenges in the country.

According to him, banditry and kidnapping are not federal offenses.

Mr. Mohammed, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, said it was unfortunate that the opposition party has not recognised the efforts by the current administration on the matter including the town hall meeting held in Kaduna where a ten-point action plan was drawn.

He said the PDP press conference was just a play to the gallery and further accused the party of trying to play politics with issues of national security.
