We Are Appalled By The Worsening Security Situation - Nigerian Governors Write

Insecurity in Nigeria has worsened, this is the opinion of the 36 Governors in Nigeria . The NGF is not happy with the security situation in Nigeria. 

In a letter by the Kayode Fayemi led Nigerian Governors’ Forum to the Borno State Governor , Professor Babagana Zulum over the attack of his convoy by Boko Haram militia, the Governors’ Forum complained that they are all appalled by the worsening security situation in the country. They said that it also shows how vulnerable Nigeria has become.

They promised to pay President Muhammadu Buhari a visit over the rising insecurity in Nigeria.

The letter which was signed by Governor Fayemi reads :

“On behalf of the 36 State Governors of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under the platform of the NGF, I write to express our solidarity with you and the people of Borno State, following the attack last Wednesday, by gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect.

“This is one unwarranted attack too many. It epitomizes our collective vulnerability and the fragility of the country’s security architecture.

“Although you emerged from this incident unscathed, we note with regret the injuries sustained by two members of the Civilian Joint Task Force and a Police Officer attached to your convoy and do accordingly pray for their quick recovery.

“Mr. Governor, Forum members are resolutely behind you in your effort to rid Borno State of these dastardly and wicked agents of evil.

“We are appalled by the worsening security situation in the country generally, in-spite of all the efforts of government to end it.”

You would recall that Governor Babagana Zulum ‘s convoy was attacked by Boko Haram members while touring Baga town in Borno State.
