Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed has called on traditional and community leaders across the state to be security-conscious and against foreign elements that infiltrate their communities.
Governor Mohammed stated this at the palace of the district head of Jama’a in Nabordo Village, Toro Local Government Area of Bauchi State, in continuation of his inspection of projects tour in the state.
He said although there is relative peace in the state, leaders in communities must not rest on their oars, by ensuring that they protect their citizens from strangers who sneak into the communities with dubious motives.
“Remember security is everybody’s business, yes we have relative peace, but i am calling on our traditional rulers and all the leaders across the length and breadth of our social strata to open their eyes, people are coming from everywhere. They have the right to come, but we have the right to protect ourselves
“Let us be very vigilant, let us not allow insecurity to divide us. We have to work very very hard because there are those coming that are abducting our people and doing all sorts of things, we should not allow them to do it. The government does not have the resources and manpower to police everywhere, but you can do it,” he said.
Earlier in his address, the State Commissioner for Local government Affairs, Nuhu Zaki, said that the government awarded the contract for the reconstruction of the palace of the district head of Jama’a at the sum of N7 million.
He lauded the administration of Governor Bala Mohammed for executing laudable projects in the state that has direct impact on the lives of the people even as he called on the people of the community to continue to support the government in order for it to succeed.
