The Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed has said that the Federal Government is not playing politics with the security and welfare of Nigerians.

 

Mohammed stated this at a special town hall meeting centered on security which took place in Katsina State on Tuesday.

 

The meeting had in attendance governors from the All Progressives Congress, APC and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

 

He said, “This is first, a testimony to the fact that this Federal Government does not play politics with the security and welfare of citizens.”

 

“Secondly, (it is) a reflection of the patriotism, commitment, and nationalism of the governors, irrespective of their party affiliations. I congratulate all of us for being part of this historic outing.”

 

The Minister added that the government is unrelenting in tackling security challenges like Boko Haram, banditry and kidnapping.

 

According to him, without peace there can be no development.

 

He said, “Whether it is Boko Haram, banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling or armed robbery, the administration has faced the challenges posed by insecurity with grit and determination.

 

“The Federal Government is unrelenting in tackling these challenges because without peace and security, there can be no development.”

 

“Here in the North-West, the security challenges – banditry, cattle rustling, and kidnapping – have been unique and daunting.

 

“The deadly attacks that claimed lives and destroyed property were daily making headline news all over the country.”
