The governor stated this at the inaugural edition of the Fountain Summit organised by the Ekiti State government in Ado-Ekiti, on Thursday.
According to him, some areas in his state are almost ungovernable because of the size and inadequate police
In his words “So there are many ungovernable spaces in our state. But you see, when an incident occurs in one part of the state, remotely connected with what is happening in Kaduna or Zaria or in the metropolitan centres, people think the entire Kaduna State is unsafe. It is not true. Kaduna is not Lagos. One local government area in Kaduna — Birnin Gwari local government area — is three times the size of Lagos State."
Meanwhile, Kaduna State and other Northwest states have been battling with banditry for the past months.
