Security Meeting: Masari Laments Northern Governors’ Absence

Governor of Katsina state Aminu Bello Masari on Saturday expressed disappointment with the absence of governors of some north-western states at a meeting on the security of the sub region held in Kaduna.

Masari, who is chairman of the security committee inaugurated by the Northern Governors’ Forum, asked his colleagues to separate politics from the issue of security.

The meeting was attended by the deputy governors of Sokoto, Jigawa and Kaduna states and secretaries to the state government of two states, and that of Katsina.

“The issue of security is more important than politics as it a ects life,” Masari said at the opening of the meeting which later went into a closed-door session.

He said it was important to evolve ways of sustaining attendance not only by the governors, but also their deputies and SSGs.

“It will not however hinder the discussions or delay the meeting; we must devise means of continuing with the meeting even when the Governors are not in attendance,” he said.

“Before we leave, we should have a programme that we can brief our

governors, we should not allow this laudable initiative rely only on the availability of governors.”

There have been disturbing security issues in the states where the governors were absent.
