KATSINA STATE ON FOCUS!
By: NAJIBULLAHI YUSHA’U FUNTUA.
The security situation in Katsina State is becoming unbearable. The masses who have brought this administration into power thereby dedicating all possible resources they could offer are unrelentingly rendered hopeless.
People of Katsina state can confidently tell that we have done everything for this government to ascend the seat of power. Look at the election statistics of 2015, Katsina state gave the present administration over 93% of its votes which is unarguably the highest in the whole country. Also in 2019, the state despite the prevailing economic hardship, troop en masse to still provide this administration with about 80% of its votes which is also undebatably the highest across the nation. Believe me, the good people of Katsina state have done that with the hope of change for good. But all we are getting is the contrary to our expectations.
The prevailing and consecutive massive killings by bandits in the state worth more than just national attention. Statistics revealed that the mortality recorded in the state due to attacks by bandits in just less than two months surpassed the mortality recorded due to COVID-19 pandemic since its emergence in the country from February to date (about 5 months).
With this, we call on this government to take the necessary steps in containing this situation as things are getting out of hands. The masses are beginning to take law into their hands through violent protests. The road linking Kankara to Katsina was barricaded at Yan-Tumaki village and later the road linking Gusau-Funtua-Kaduna was barricaded at Faskari LGA. Please, let the government do the needful before the violent and furious mob take the angle of vengeance.
With this, we call on the government to hear our voices. Please, let the government know that
*we voted them for change for better, but all we are getting is change from bad to worse.
**The masses are suffering, we are mercilessly killed by bandits and in large numbers, yet, the government is turning a deaf ear to our voices.
***please let the government prioritise the priority. Peace and safety affects every sector of the economy directly or indirectly.
****Katsina state with the role we played in building this administration, we so much deserved more than we are getting.
God Bless Katsina State!
God Bless Federal Republic of Nigeria!!
