President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Ita Enang, has charged state governments to take responsibility for the security challenges in their zones.
Enang advised governors to stop pushing everything to the federal government as security challenges were more at the local and the states levels.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, Enang called on
“The states governments to take responsibility because it is a burden in which both states and Federal Government must shoulder”.
He also emphasized the need to engage youths in a bid to address the security challenges in Nigeria.
“We the leaders and elders have provoked the youth of this country, we do not plan for them and no government in this country can excuse itself from what is happing now.
“When we were busy educating our children in the best of schools, and when we were busy thinking of the welfare of our children, what did we do for them?
“The best love we can give to our children is to train the children of other people, who will live with our children otherwise, they will constitute a danger to our children.
“And, our children will not have peace,”
