Insecurity: Elections May Not Hold In Several North-West States – Governors Tell Buhari (Full List)

President Muhammadu Buhari has been warned by Nigerian governors that elections may not hold in some northwest states due to the security challenges in the zone.

Some of the affected states include Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara.

According to The Cable, the governors informed President Buhari about the security issue in a policy brief.

The brief was part of the political economy situation review sent to the president in July 2022.

The governors in a review asked the president to expedite actions on various promises to address insecurity.

President Buhari was charged by the governors to establish military bases in Birnin Gwari, Rijana, Kachia and Mararraban Jos in Kaduna state and Kontagora and Gwada in Niger state.

The review reads, “Expedite promised the establishment of military bases in Birnin Gwari, Rijana, Kachia and Mararraban Jos in Kaduna State, and Kontagora and Gwada in Niger State.

“Ensure promised simultaneous operations scheduled for July 1 but yet to commence are ordered and complied with immediately.

“Ensure operations prevent Boko Haram terrorists from attacking the Shiroro R2 transmission line (R1 already down and inaccessible), which will throw the entire north-west and Niger into darkness.

“Renewed appeal for a Theatre Command in the north-west along with deployment of MNJTF due to borders with Niger and Benin Republics that are major sources of arms and ammunition.”
