The Governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani, on Tuesday said some former governors in the North-West had compromised the security alliance among states in the region by “wining and dining” with bandits and other terrorists.
The states in the region are Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara.
Sani claimed some governors took an “extremely wrong” approach in the management of the internal affairs of their states, leading to the current security challenges.
The governor argued that the approach brought the progress backwards, resulting in a breakdown of the alliance.
The insecurity in the region, according to him, necessitated urgent action from the governors in the region.
According to him, the North-West governors are in agreement on the need to tackle the problem and plan to reach out to the Niger State governor, Umar Bago, “because we have a similar problem”.
Sani added that the governors are also planning to meet President Bola Tinubu as a group.
