Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has expressed worry over the spate of insecurity in Nigeria.

El-Rufai lamented that state governors are frustrated, helpless and dissatisfied with their roles, amid the challenges of insecurity in the country.

The governor spoke during an interview with Channels Television’s politics Today, on Monday.

El-Rufai also pointed out that the recent End SARS protest has exposed the helplessness of state governors in the face of insecurity.

The governor further lamented that state governors are not in control of security outfits in their domains.

According to El-Rufai: “We are all frustrated. I am frustrated in my state, many governors are frustrated in their states; we are called chief security officers only in name, we have no control over cohesive instruments of the state.

“We are almost helpless. The #EndSARS protest clearly showed the limit to the control of governors over the police and the military.

“Some of us have more influence than others, but to a large extent, you ask the commissioner of police to do something and he has to clear with the Inspector-General of Police; this is the reality.

“We are not in control of the police, I don’t determine who gets posted to my state as CP and if I give him directives, he can decide to flout the directives. So, we are all frustrated.”
