The governor identified the menace of street gangs, kidnapping, armed robbery as some of the security challenges in the state.

“We have been working with police to curtail that, and also prosecuting offenders with stiffer penalties,” he said.

According to him, the indigene- settler phenomenon has contributed immensely to creating deep division among the people of Nigeria.

“Until we retrace ourselves and move away from that and look at the citizen from what he or she can contribute; we are sad with the way people are now, as the more educated they are the more ignorant they become.”

“There are nine governors who strongly believe in state police, the current number of policemen in the country is grossly inadequate, there is need to double the number of police personnel.”
