PDP Govs seek increased military surveillance to check Boko Haram Onslaught




The governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under the aegis of PDP Governors’ Forum rose from a meeting Wednesday night tasking the military to increase its vigilance against the Boko Haram onslaught in the Northern part of the country.

The governors after their meeting ahead of the larger Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), expressed concerns that despite the security measures by the armed forces, the sect had increased in its attacks.

Addressing journalists after their meeting late yesterday, the governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said even as they met, the governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwambo, received a call of another attack in his state.

Emmanuel, while enjoining the armed forces to step up their operations also lamented the state of the internally Displaced Persons.

He said “We actually enjoined the Armed forces to step up their security measures to see how they can stem the tide of this menace. It’s really a thing of concern to PDP government that in spite of all the efforts in the Armed Forces these guys are still proving to be more formidable.

“So, we are sure if the Armed Forces step up a little bit, they should be able to curtail.

Referring to the situation in Gombe State yesterday, he said “we received another report of another attack. These are things we believe we all rise up as a country, we should be able to curtail it.”
