Niger leaders alerted to security challenges

14 March 2016, 21:36

Abuja - Niger State governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, has urged local government chairpersons to brace up to the security challenges in their regions.

He said as Chief Security Officers of their various local governments, the leaders must liaise with security agencies and traditional rulers to curtail various forms of criminality especially robbery and cattle rustling in their locality.

“You must take steps to ensure that you have adequate information on movement of people within your local government areas,” he told the chairmen in a meeting with the chairmen in Minna.

“The era of allowing migrants to settle in communities without adequate clearance is over.”

Bello reminded the chairmen of the people's mandate in their trust and urged them to use such mandate to better their local government councils by embarking on projects that have direct relevance to the life of the people.

“You are already aware of the present economic situation in the country, therefore, you must create more revenue sources and take advantage of the existing ones to improve on the internally generated revenue as well as block all loopholes and wastages,” he added.

The governor urged them to work with traditional rulers and community elders to ensure that no migrant settle in their locality without notice.

“I urge you to take advantage of revenue sources in your local governments such as markets, motor parks and trailer parks,” said Bello.
