Kaduna State Governor, Alhaji Uba Sani has stormed the Aso Rock Presidential villa, Abuja, with loads of requests on President Bola Tinubu to intervene in the security challenge rearing its head in the State.
Speaking to newsmen shortly after a close door meeting with the President today, October 24, Governor Uba Sani said: “we have some areas where we need Mr. President’s intervention and support, especially in the area of Security as well as all other important programmes of our own government that have to do with agriculture and healthcare.”
The Governor said that after a series of meetings he had had with the service chiefs recently, he had concluded that the state needs some more boots on the ground in areas like Birnin Gwari, Giwa, Idebi as well as some local governments around Zangon Kataf, Kaura and some axes of Southern Kaduna.
He said that the President has stepped up his effort of ensuring that the military generally considered Kaduna as one of the most important states that needs serious support on security.
“We need Federal Government intervention because as you are aware, security is something to do with the federal government, particularly when it comes to issue of the service chiefs, the police and the DSS.
“As someone who have been in National Assembly for four years before being the governor, I know we need the support of the federal government and Mr. President, in particular, for us to be able to address the problem of insecurity in our states.”
