Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, has said that the governors in the country are concerned over the recent attack on the convoy of Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom by suspected herdsmen.
Ganduje who spoke to State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja, on Monday, added that the recent rise in insecurity is worrisome.
He expressed optimism that the appointment of new service chiefs will bring the situation o an end.
Ganduje said, “I think it’s unfortunate, but I believe with appointment of new service chiefs, new strategy will be developed and I think Mr. President has always been serious on this issue, but is rather unfortunate. ]
“Not only governors being attacked, anybody who is attacked in Nigeria, one should be worried because life is life. Certainly we’re worried because a governor is supposed to have some security with him, let alone of an ordinary man who has no security.
“So you can see how serious the situation is. It’s unfortunate, but we believe will come over it.”
