The Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in the upcoming Niger State Guber election, Mohammed Bago has revealed that he will protect the forests of Niger state by equipping the Fulanis so that they can fight off those trying to destroy their properties. Bago made this known in an exclusive interview he had with Channels Television.
When asked by a Channels Television anchor, Seun Okin about what he's going to do to secure the properties and lives in Niger state if elected, Bago listed some of his plans for the state.
Hear him, "First and foremost, we have to play 2 ways, kinetic and non-kinetic, we will emphasize the non-kinetic approach to solve the insecurity issues. First, we will bring local authorities into full governance to see that the traditional institutions are brought in so that we'll see a census of people who live within our community.
Secondly, we need to empower our people in rural areas so that they are not lured into these issues. We will also talk to the Fulanis because these issues are mostly within them. Their cattle are being rustled, so we have to create a Niger ranger to protect our forests. We will equip the Fulanis if am elected as Governor so that they can protect the forest."
