Insecurity: Jigawa Gov blames past leaders for banditry, farmers/herders clash
The governor commended the present administration’s efforts on security, noting that the bombings carried out by Boko Haram has reduced.
Badaru who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today, said the insecurity was inherited by President Buhari in 2015 and has continued since then.
“If we look at this and analyse it critically, the banditry and kidnapping did not start with President Buhari. It just continued,” he said.
“Before Buhari, there were bombings everywhere, in Kano, the UN office in Abuja. Since he came in, that has ceased. So many local governments in the hands of Boko Haram and that have also gone.
“Unfortunately for us, it gets worse at this time and President Muhammadu Buhari is doing his best to solve this problem and curtail the onslaught.”
Governor Badaru, who is also the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Strategy and Contact Committee, Badaru Abubakar, also spoke on his party’s preparedness for the 2023 general elections.
He noted that the APC is a strong party that is repositioned to win the next polls which is just two years away, while denying the existence of any rift between President Buhari and the party’s National Leader, Bola Tinubu.
He added, “No there is none, I think people wanted to see that and that will not happen. I believe it is all politics. President Muhammadu Buhari, Bola Tinubu and all the leaders of the party speak with one voice.
“We have pushed that story about President Buhari and Tinubu to certainly hit the polity. But it is not true. We know that the party is one indivisible and all the stakeholders are being carried along.”
When asked if the APC would zone the 2023 presidential ticket to the southern part of the country, the governor kept mum on the issue.
He however said the zoning would be agreed upon by the party’s leaders and members of the Strategy and Contact Committee.
