Buhari approves Military Checkpoints for 3 States.

According to reports by Governor of Zamfara state and Chairman of the Governors’ forum, Abdulazeez Yari, President Buhari have peddled down on the order to demolish all military checkpoints nationwide. 

Speaking to a correspondent of the Cable on Tuesday, June 23, the governor said: “The order was untimely because of the security challenges facing the States.”

Due to insurgencies especially in the Northern part of the country, Mr. President has given the chief of army staff the permission to continue with the military checkpoints in highly affected states. Continue......

The governor continued by naming the front-line states, saying that:“we discussed the issue of front-line states as regards insurgency: Borno, Yobe and Adamawa. The President briefed us on his meeting with the G7 countries, who have agreed to support the Nigerian government to fight the insurgency to the last. 

“Also, it was noted that the insurgency has done so much damage to our infrastructure – schools, hospitals, and bridges. The president said he has put a committee in place to go and assess the situation and he has also made a commitment that he will not request money from any G7 country but support to rebuild the destroyed infrastructure.”

President Buhari had on Monday, June 22, ordered the immediate demolition of all military checkpoints across the country following a meeting with security chiefs.
