Safeguard Lives and Properties of Nigerians, Wamakko Urges FG

Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko


By Mohammed Aminu 


Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko, has urged the Federal Government to take more concrete measures to safeguard the lives and property of Nigerians.

Wamakko spoke in Washington DC, United States of America (USA), in a paper presented at an International symposium on social, economic and security issues in Northern Nigeria. The symposium was organised by the United States Institute of Peace attended by the northern governors.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Assistant to Wamakko on Information, Communications and Technology (ICT), a copy of which was made available to THISDAY in Sokoto, yesterday.

According to the statement, the symposium was conducted between March 17 and March 19 in Washington DC. It maintained that the pre-occupation of the government should be to safeguard the lives and property of the citizenry.

“The preoccupation of the government should be to safeguard lives and property of citizens and a government that fails in this regard has no business in leadership,” the statement read.

The governor said part of what the global humanity should do to prevail upon Nigerian government to do, is to pre-occupy itself with bringing a decisive end to the insurgency in the country.

He added that doing so would be a precursor to free and fair elections in the country.
