How Yahaya Bello’s Gains On Security Earned Him A Top Spot To Lead Northern Governors To Fight Insecurity
Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State might have been involved in several controversies but the youngest Governor in Nigeria has again justified his worth after being appointed to lead Northern Governor’s Forum to fight insecurity in the region.
This has once again justified the laudable achievements recorded by Yahaya Bello on the area of security in Kogi State.
Bello, the youngest Governor in Nigeria will now lead the standing committee in Northern Nigeria using his approach to flush out the bandits and criminal elements in the region.
Yahaya Bello’s appointment was made known on the statement issued by Plateau State Governor’s Director of Press and Public Affairs, Makut Macham, on Friday, stating that the decision to see up Yahaya Bello-led committee by the 19 Governors in the Northern States was reached during the regional meeting held on Thursday through teleconference aimed at discussing the menace of insecurity in the region.
Yahaya Bello-led committee which has Zamfara and Gombe Governors as members was presided over by the Chairman of Northern Governor’s Forum, Simon Lalong of Plateau State and unanimously agreed to engage local vigilantes, hunters and community watch groups to help in the fight against insecurity, intelligence gathering and surveillance in the region.
Yahaya Bello’s achievement and nomination to lead the Northern Governors in the battle against insecurity in the region did not come as a surprise.
Those who have been following the activities of Kogi politics will attest to the laudable achievements of Yahaya Bello on the area of security until the recent attacks in the state and has already swung into action to arrest the situation.
Recall that Yahya Bello was declared the best governor on security in Nigeria in 2017 and awarded by the Nigerian Police Force.
Bello’s award came after he flushed out criminal elements; the kidnappers and armed robbers that took over most of the communities and highways of Kogi State before his emergence.
Bello will now bring the method he used to solve insecurity problem in Kogi State to the table as he lead Northern Governors in the battle against insecurity in the Northern Nigeria.
If Yahaya Bello is able to justify the trust and the overwhelming responsibility placed on him to solve the menace of insecurity problem in the Northern region, his name will be in the book of history and would fully justify the fact that he is the youngest Governor in Nigeria and the fact that the answer to the problems of Nigeria is with the youths.
