The Minister of Information and culture,Lai Mohammed,while speaking at a press conference today affirmed that those involved in banditry and kidnapping cannot be prosecuted by the Federal Government because it is not a federal offense.Lai Mohammed's statement was in reply to the accusation laid by the People's Democratic Party on monday against President Muhammadu Buhari's administration--blaming them for the high level of insecurity in Nigeria.
Lai Mohammed further asked the People’s Democratic Party to blame the State Governments and Political party heads, accountable for the prosecution of banditry and kidnapping cases. The Minister of information further expressed disappointment towards the opposition party for not recognising how hard the present administration is fighting to restore peace in the country.He further asked them to calm down that Mr President will find a lasting solution to the insecurity crisis.
"Don’t Politicise Insecurity, Buhari Will Find Lasting Solutions," He said
Opinion:Prosecuting bandits and kidnappers should be part of the Federal Governments responsibilities,if they truly care about the citizens.
