Darius Ishaku, Governor of Taraba State, has said that governors in the country are helpless in the area of insecurity, saying the establishment of state police was the way to go.
Ishaku said this in Jalingo during the flagging off of the distribution of fertilizers, seedlings, and Agrochemicals for Taraba farmers for the 2019 farming season.
“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.
