Plateau attacks: Lalong incapacitated, can’t order security agencies - APC

Plateau attacks: Lalong incapacitated, can’t order security agencies - APC (Updated: 1 year ago)


Sequel to the recent security challenges that have rocked some communities in Plateau State, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state said Governor Simon Lalong is incapacitated, because the nation’s constitution does not give him the powers to give directives to security agencies.

The party called on the National Assembly to do the needful by ensuring the amendment of the country’s constitution, so that state police will be created, “which will give Governors direct responsibility to bark and bite”.

Acting Caretaker Committee Chairman of APC in the state, Hon. Enoch Fanmak disclosed this while briefing journalists in Jos, the state capital.

Fanmak said, “We want to specially commend the Governor for his proactive steps in ensuring quick intervention towards ensuring that the situation does not go out of control.

“We believe the Governor has done his best but is greatly limited because of lack of direct control of the security agencies that have to receive orders from their headquarters even after the Governor gives them directives.

“We hope that the National Assembly will do the needful by amending the Constitution to provide for State Police which will give Governors direct responsibility to bark and bite.

“While we commend the efforts of the security agencies in the State for containing the situation and doing their best to maintain law and order, we urge them to go further and arrest all the perpetrators of all the killings across the affected LGAs and ensure that they are prosecuted expeditiously.

“Nobody should be spared if he is found guilty whether he is a perpetrator or sponsor.

“The blood of those who were killed in Miango, Dong, Kwi, Yelwa Zagam, Rukuba Road, Bwai among others must never be allowed to go in vain. All lives are precious and matter.

“At the same time, we call on our citizens to continue to support the Government and security agencies as well as community and traditional leaders to quickly restore normalcy within the affected areas while ensuring that justice is done to everyone.

“We must avoid the divisive tactics employed by enemies of the State to use religion, ethnicity, and politics to jeopardize the peace of the state.”
