Insecurity : “Let Responsible Citizens Carry Guns, Others” – Gov. Ortom Begs FG

Published

on

The Governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, Wednesday appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government to allow ‘responsible citizens’ to carry guns such as AK47 to prevent criminals from attacking harmless Nigerians.

Ortom stated this in a paper obtained by ChannelsTv, which he (Ortom) presented yesterday during the virtual meeting convened by Centre for Values in Leadership, CVL, in collaboration with Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF.

In the paper titled ‘Insecurity and Governance Challenges in the New Normal’, the Governor said governments at all levels must come to terms with the fact that insecurity is a real threat to the development of the country and be willing to sincerely tackle the menace.

He also recommended adequate funding of security agencies and continuous training of their personnel to enable them to be abreast of global dynamics in the fight against insecurity.

Remember that President Buhari had promised to equip the military with more arms. The President informed the governors of the imminent shipment of  weapons and aircraft from Jordan, China and the United States, but again asked for patience on the part of the public because the new weapons and aircraft must be manned by trained fighters and pilots who must first receive appropriate training for that.
