Former Governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda, said President Muhammadu Buhari has done his best in tackling the insecurity and economic challenges facing the nation.

The former minister of aviation said this on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, on Monday, August 22, 2022, while adding that Buhari is not to blame for the surge in attacks across the country.

“Mr President has done his best,” he said. “Everybody’s best is different. So I can say the President has done his best.

“And he has appointed actors to assist him to manage the country – they are also doing their best. It all depends on somebody’s assessments. As far as I’m concerned, the President has done his best.”

According to the former minister, he said the security of states is not one of the main responsibilities of the president, and governors swore to protect lives and property in their states.

He said Governors have all the resources and sufficient personnel to tackle insecurity in their states.

“Security issues are the babies of governors, not Mr Presidents. If you see anything going wrong as far as security or insecurity is concerned, you hold the governors accountable.

“They are sworn to protect lives and property. [For terrorism cases] you hold them responsible because they own the land.

“President does not have land, the president does not give CofO to the states and you don’t expect the President to go and secure their lands.

“Each Governor has a brigade commander, each governor has a commissioner of police, each governor has a director of SSS, civil defence commandant and other paramilitaries directly dealing with the security of the state.

“I’m not exonerating the president as such, but when attacks happen, the governor down there should be queried for making matters deteriorate to that extent.”

Mr Yuguda admitted that the statistics on Nigerian security and economy were “a little bit depressing” but insisted it wasn’t the President’s fault.

“Any rational Nigerian will know that it could not have been any better no matter who was there on the driving seat,” he said.

“Most of these things that are happening to us are historical.

“If you are coming from an environment where the foundation has been distorted then what you reap is what you sow.

“Security, for instance, is a historical thing. it didn’t start with Buhari’s government. It started in 2008, 2009.”
