Amid worsening security crisis in the country, especially in the north, Aminu Masari, governor of Katsina, has appealed to the federal government to declare a state of emergency.

The governor, who made the plea during the 2021 third quarter general meeting of the conference of state legislators of Nigeria on Saturday, said a state of emergency will stem the tide of senseless killings and destruction of properties.

The governor implored lawmakers and relevant stakeholders to see dialogue as a way of addressing the perennial insecrity facing the country as it would help put an end with the killings and destruction of properties.

He averred that the major challenge confronting Katsina is Insecurity, noting that the state lawmakers are doing everything necessary to tackle the menace holistically.

While extolling the Security agencies efforts in addressing the security issues across the country, he stressed the need for the need for them to be practical in putting an end to activities of non-state actors and criminal wreaking havoc across the country.

Masari’s position comes months after he vehemently opposed the call by the house of representatives in April, asking the federal government to declare a state of emergency on Insecurity.
