We must forge common strategy to tackle insecurity – Uba Sani to Northern Governors

Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani has urged the Northern governors to develop a Common Strategy and Operational Plan to tackle insecurity in the region.

He also stressed the need to establish a Command and Control Centre to coordinate the joint efforts against terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and other criminal elements in the region.

Speaking at the inaugural meeting of the 19 Northern Governors in Kaduna on Friday, Governor Uba Sani said, “We must develop a Common Strategy and Operational Plan to tackle insecurity. We must establish a Command and Control Centre to coordinate our joint efforts against terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and other criminal elements in our region.”

He noted that the region has been grappling with the challenges of insecurity for years, pointing out that human development indices have declined in the region.

He said for the Northern Governors Forum to remain relevant, they must forge unity among the people and collaborate on issues of development.

“We must fashion a Marshal Plan for the development of the North. Our situation is dire and requires concerted and sustained action,” he stressed.

Governor Uba Sani stated that the vision for the design of a strategic agenda for the development of the north should be anchored on a core ideal that puts the people at the centre of their aspiration and drive, saying that it is simply because the mandate they got to lead, emanated from the people.

According to him, “Diversity and ethno-religious unity remain the foundation for the advancement of the ideals of regional peace, security and development in the North. Northern Governors must work together towards empowering the people as key production forces for the growth of the North. This requires deliberate policy designs and implementation, in ways that recognize the critical role of leadership in leading such initiatives.”
