A former Governor of Abia state, Dr Orji Kalu, on Wednesday called on state governors to stop blaming President Muhammadu Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo over insecurity in their respective states.
Kalu while speaking to newsmen in Lagos on Wednesday urged the state governors to live up to their responsibility of being the chief security officers of their respective states and stop making excuses.
He also debunked the reports that the governors were not in control of the security apparatus, adding that security votes and funds can be used to solve insecurity in different states if used appropriately.
Kalu said: “The recipe is to solve insecurity is for the governors to stand up. I have been a governor before. They should use the security votes they have to fight against insecurity.
“As a state governor, I summoned the Commissioner of Police, I summoned the Brigade Commander at any time of the day and they must come for us to discuss security issues.
“I get angry when people keep blaming Buhari for everything. Look at Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode, he is not calling anybody for anything. He is a good governor.
“Those governors who are complaining should do their job. They should put the security funds where they are supposed to be.”
