The former immediate senator who represented Central Kaduna in the 8th Senate, Comrade Shehu Sani, has asked the northern governors to learn how to end kidnapping and banditry in the region.
Latest Nigeria Newspaper report that Senator Sani gave the advice while receiving the Chikun youth ambassadors, headed by its president, Khalifa Usman Shu’aib, on a courtesy visit to his home.
He noted that “kidnapping and banditry prevail mainly in the states of Zamfara, Katsina and Kaduna and, according to recent reports, the governors of Zamfara and Katsina began negotiations with criminals in an effort to avoid peace in their states.”
While pointing out that the kidnapping is demonizing the northern and western states of the country, the former legislator said that the government at all levels has failed in its responsibility to protect citizens.
Latest Nigeria Newspaper report that Sani explained that now that Nigeria has been reduced so much that the bandits give conditions, peace with the bandits can only be maintained if it is oiled with money.
According to him, “today, the poor and rich, powerful and weak have given up traveling along the Kaduna -Abuja road and now stamp the train station in Rigasa.
“At this time, the government does not protect its citizens. Our people are being kidnapped every day and they are selling their land, agricultural products and houses to pay the kidnappers.
“This is a serious problem for this state, all of the north and Nigeria. “There can be no significant development in the North as long as the kidnapping trend continues.
Latest Nigeria Newspaper also report that The governors of the north, particularly those of the ruling party, should get off their high horse and learn from the governor of Zamfara about how to end kidnapping and banditry. They must get away from pride and arrogance and feel humble when learning from this young man in the state of Zamfara. ”
