Gov. Ganduje Disowns Operation Shege Ka Fasa, Says Its Needless In Kano
Abdulahi Ganduje, governor of Kano State, has distanced himself from the creation of Operation Shege Ka Fasa, saying his state has no need for such security outfit.
Ganduje, who spoke with newsmen in Abuja, noted that his administration preferred building a strong synergy between the communities and the security agencies to backing the Operation Shege Ka Fasa.
On Wednesday, the Coalition of Northern Groups launched operation Shege Ka Fasa.
Ganduje said the state government had invested so much in security at various levels that it would be unnecessary to consider any other external arrangement.
He described Kano as the most peaceful state in the country currently and has a conducive environment for the security agencies to perform to their maximum level.
His words: “Kano State, being the most peaceful state in the federation. Very soon, we are going to have a community security summit. That is how the communities are going to assist security agencies.
“We are going to come out with a blueprint. Instead of recruiting people into the police force, we are going to build a strong synergy between the communities and the security agencies. The synergy will be from the ward level to the local government level to the state level to the zonal level. It will work because it has been working.
“So, there is no intention to recruit into security agencies in the state and moreover we have introduced ICT into the security operations in the state. We have built a command and control centre where we can communicate with all the DPOs in the state.
“We can see them, speak with them through the cameras. CCTVs have been installed in all black spots throughout the state. We have been monitoring and it is working. We have also installed the most powerful vehicle tracker in the country which operates even beyond Kano State. That is why Kano State is a trap where kidnappers can be arrested.
“Kano State, as of today, is the most peaceful state in the country. There are no armed robbery, no banditry, no tribal conflicts and no religious conflicts. You will recall that those who attacked the Deputy Governor of Nasarawa State were arrested in Kano.”
