The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of Kastina state have accused the state Governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari, of lacking security plans to tackle the pervading security challenges some parts of the state are facing.
The party added that the governor does not have the any idea on how to end the daily attacks from bandits, including kidnapping and raping innocent women and girls.
The PDP state party chairman , Hon. Salisu Magijiri, said this while receiving 500 defectors from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in Malumfashi Local Government Area of the state.
He said: “The APC government under the leadership of Governor Aminu Masari does not have the political will or security plans to drive the security challenges in Katsina to an end, because there are so many policies and programmes of his government that does not tally with the way and manner that can end banditry in Katsina.
“The government doesn’t have idea of on the insecurity of the state, There was a time he came and he cannot even guarantee his safety, that is very discouraging and that will not help the situation in the State.
“if you merge all the things happening, you will come to the conclusion that the government doesn’t have any idea on the fight against insecurity in the state. There is no coordination within the government agencies and they are not ready to solve this problem.”
The PDP chairman, also called for the involvement of traditional and religious leaders in the ongoing war against banditry for long lasting peace and development in the state.
