“Southern And Northern Governors Should Settle Their Differences” – Olusegun Mimiko

Mimiko stated this in a statement issued on Thursday, while reacting to the resolutions adopted by the southern governors after a meeting held in Asaba on Tuesday.

He said that the resolutions reached by the Southern governors in Asaba, would amount to waste of efforts without the inputs of their Northern counterparts.

“It is also salutary that members of the Southern Caucus of the National Assembly have weighed in. It’s all a reflection of the realisation of the fact that the nation may be perching at the precipice, and of the urgent need to pull her back.

“The next step is for the southern governors to meet with their northern counterparts to iron out what may just be minor areas of difference in substance and timelines.

“There cannot be any reasonable arguments against decentralisation of policing to ensure the emergence of compact and efficient sub-national forces under state (sub-national government control).

“There surely cannot be any disagreement amongst the governors on the issue of devolution of resources from the centre. As a matter of fact, the present revenue allocation formula has long been statutorily due for review. New sources of revenue will surely be needed for state policing, and to address ongoing security challenges in the states.”

Mimiko, who expressed support to the resolutions of the southern governors, advised all the stakeholders to act on the Nigeria issue when it was time to do so.

 

KanyiDaily recalls that during the meeting, the Southern Governors banned open grazing of cattle across states in the region and urged President Buhari to address Nigerians on the challenges of insecurity in the country.
