Katsina State PDP Chairman, Alhaji Salisu Majigiri has called the attention of necessary stakeholders to the security situation in Katsina State.
Majigiri who made this call during an interview said necessary support is needed to be given to security agencies to tackle the terrorists and hooligans who he said might constitute a threat to a free, credible and fair election in 2023.
“Unfortunately, insecurity tends to have worsened in Katsina State as the election inches nearer, despite the fact that security agencies are doing their best.
“On August 31, there was an incident in Jibia Local Government where two soldiers were killed and others were wounded. Similarly, our House of Assembly candidate for Kankia, Ibrahim Tafashiya, was abducted on Saturday night, although the police rescued him the same night.
He expressed concern over the incidnetd as a result of insecurity less than six months before the general election might hinder electorate from coming out to vote during election.
The Chairman pointed out that the government especially at the federal level, has the capacity to handle the situation.
“They can curtail the security situation. All they need to do is put in more effort and support security agencies.”
He stated that the Police needs necessary logistics including operational vehicles and communication gadgets to tackle the security challenges in the State.
“Our security operatives are willing but the government must support them with the necessary logistics, including modern-day instruments that would aid in crime prevention and control.
Majigiri further appealed to the electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission to ensure a free, fair, and credible election.
“I will also appeal to the security agencies to be neutral and ensure prompt delivery of election items at various polling centres during the election, and I will appeal to the residents of the state to also troop out and vote during the election.
