Bauchi Gov warns traditional rulers, community leaders against indiscriminate land allocation

Posted by on January 4, 2022 0

Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, has again warned traditional rulers and community leaders in the state against indiscriminate land allocation, which had in the past caused herders, farmers clashes, leading to the loss of lives and valuable property.

The governor gave the warning while granting audience to Ward Heads, community and religious leaders from Alkaleri Local Government Area of the state during a two-day community engagement in his hometown.

While saying that traditional, religious and community leaders have been contributing to sustaining peace in the state, Governor Mohammed asked them not to destroy their own efforts by using their positions to cause farmers/ herders conflict through sale or illegal allocation of land in their respective areas.

He further advised leaders not to engage in any act capable of disrupting the peace in the area, especially issues of land allocation.

In another development, the governor donated 10 operational motorcycles to volunteer security operatives in Duguri district of Alkaleri LGA.

Presenting the motorcycles at the palace of the district head of Duguri, the governor explained that the donation was meant to appreciate the volunteer operatives for their sacrifices towards securing the lives and properties of local communities in the area.

He directed them to renew their commitment towards protecting the state from all forms of insecurity, saying that since Duguri shared borders with Plateau, Gombe and Taraba States, there was the need to intensify patrol along its borderline with a view to addressing potential security threats.

While acknowledging their sacrifices towards assisting security agencies to tackle crime and criminality, the governor cautioned them to discharge their responsibilities according to the law.

He advised them to always collaborate with the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and other conventional security personnel in the area to avoid a breach of law and order.

According to him, the state government was working in active synergy with security agencies in the state with a view to ridding the state of criminal activities.

The governor then pledged to personally assist them with monthly stipends to enhance their operations.

“I want to assure our vigilante group in Duguri district that apart from these motorcycles, I will be giving you monthly financial support to enable you perform optimally,” he pledged.

Responding, the District Head of Duguri, Ibrahim YM Baba, applauded the governor for the gesture, urging the vigilante group to utilize the motorcycles judiciously for improving security not only in Duguri but also across the state.
