Attack on Ortom unfortunate – Ganduje


Ganduje lists amounts paid for judges' furniture, medical, accommodation, other allowances

Governor of Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje, has described the attack on his Benue state counterpart, Samuel Ortom, as worrisome.
Recall that the Benue governor and his security aides were attacked by suspected herdsmen over the weekend.

Speaking on Monday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja, Ganduje said the rising spate of insecurity in the country is unfortunate.

He was however optimistic that the situation would get better through the new strategies being deployed by the service chiefs.

“I think it’s unfortunate, but I believe with the appointment of new service chiefs, new strategy will be developed and I think Mr. President has always been serious on this issue but it is rather unfortunate.

“Not only governors being attacked, anybody who is attacked in Nigeria, one should be worried because life is life. Certainly, we’re worried because a governor is supposed to have some security with him, let alone an ordinary man who has no security.

“So you can see how serious the situation is. It’s unfortunate, but we believe will come over it,” he said.

Ganduje stated that Kano is safe because of various investments his administration has made in terms of security, describing the state as the “most peaceful” in the country.

“All what I know as of today Kano is the most peaceful state in the federation and this is not by chance; there must be some security measures that we have taken, like full cooperation among the security agencies in Kano state.

“We introduced the command and control centre; the CCTV where we are viewing the whole Metropolitan Kano. We have the most powerful tracker vehicle, equipment in Kano,” he said.
