Coalition asks Buhari to declare emergency in 4 states

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has called on the Federal Government to declare state of emergency in Taraba, Kaduna, Benue and Zamfara states.

The states are currently facing various security challenges including kidnappings, herder/farmer clashes, rustling and armed banditry.

The coalition spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, who addressed journalists yesterday in Abuja on the state of the nation, said the current political structures in those states should be suspended and replaced with sole administrators until conditions improved.

Though Section 305 of the Constitution gives the President the power to declare a state of emergency in collaboration with the National Assembly, it does not vest the authority to remove a sitting governor on the President.

The coalition warned President Muhammadu Buhari and all elected representatives from the North to treat the issue properly to avoid carrying its burden towards the 2019 general elections.
