The North-East governors’ forum says there is a need for the region to adopt community policing and sub-regional security outfits to tackle the current security challenges in the region.
This was contained in a 10-point communique issued shortly after their meeting held on Wednesday in Bauchi.
The communique was read by the Deputy Chairman, North-East Governors’ Forum, Adamawa State Umaru Fintiri.
“The Forum appreciates the reinforced efforts in the fight against insurgency and other forms of criminalities in the sub-region, however, it strongly feels the need for community policing and sub-regional security outfit to compliment the efforts of the Military and other Federal Security Agencies in addressing these challenges,” the governors said.
They also decried the lack of commitment by the Federal Government to continue the Mambila Hydropower Project.
Other resolutions reached were centered on the economic development of the region and improving the education sector.
