Politicians Exploit Insecurity For Personal Gains – Matawalle
Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State, has noted that some politicians in Nigeria are responsible for insecurity crisis in the country.
Matawalle stated this on Tuesday when he spoke at the Special Army Super Camp 4 in Faskari town.
Matawalle said, “We, the politicians, are to be blamed for the intractable security challenges bedeviling our communities. It is evident that some politicians exploit insecurity for political gains. These unscrupulous politicians would hardly commend the military for their successes at the battlefronts.”
“However, they would be eager to rush to the media to report attacks by bandits or other miscreants”.
“For these crop of politicians, politics is not about genuine commitment to the wellbeing of the people; it is all about power and nothing more.”
He further stated that ensuring security is not just the duty of President Muhammadu Buhari, the governor’s, the service chief but of every Nigerian.
