Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, citing the worsening insecurity in Nigeria, has asked the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to account for the $1 billion security funds jointly contributed by the 36 states of the federation to fight insurgency.

Speaking in Makurdi on Tuesday, Ortom asked “what have they done with the $1 billion the Governors Forum gave on behalf of the local governments for security?

“That money is huge. What have they done with the money that terrorists will kidnap citizens without any rescue mission? It is even more worrisome and unthinkable that terrorists will threaten to kidnap our President. If that happens, that means we have no country again.

“The primary responsibility of any responsive government is to ensure the safety of lives and property. The situation where innocent Nigerians are left at the mercy of vicious terrorists is unacceptable. We must not allow this to continue.”

Ortom expressed sadness that Nigeria is unable to tackle its security challenges, but noted that security issues should be the concern of all, emphasising that it should not be tailored along political lines as protection of lives and property of citizens ought to be prioritized.
