Governor of Taraba State, Darius Ishaku, has said no Governor has the ability to tackle insecurity in any state in Nigeria.

Ishaku said this while fielding questions from journalists after he flagged off the distribution of fertilizers, seedlings, and agrochemicals to farmers for the 2019 farming season, in Jalingo, on Wednesday.

The Governor reiterated the need for the establishment of state police to end insecurity, adding that any Governor that promises to tackle insecurity is lying.
He also called on the residents of the state to keep praying to God for peace to reign in the state, adding that he cannot do anything about the security challenges bedeviling the state.

“If any governor tells you that he will do anything about insecurity, such a governor is lying

“As governors, we don’t have control over the police or army and virtually there is nothing we can do over security. We have been calling for the establishment of state police, but nobody seems to consider our position.

“The constitution did not place the security architecture of the country in the hands of governors. I am praying myself for peace and I have also asked the people of the state to pray for peace in the state,” he said.
