Mutfwang harps on international collaboration to tackle insecurity




The Governor of Plateau State, Barrister Caleb Mutfwang, says the need for international collaboration and cooperation was imperative towards tackling the crises bedeviling Plateau State, the North Central and northern Nigeria as a whole.

According to him, the persistent violent attacks in Northern Nigeria needed urgent collaboration to nib them in the bud.

Governor Mutfwang disclosed this in an interview with journalists on arrival from a peace and security dialogue held in the United States of America (USA) at the Yakubu Gowon Airport, Heipang, near Jos.

The governor, who was part of the delegation of northern governors that attended the dialogue, posited that the attacks had a lot of international dimension but assured that the government would confront the perpetrators head-on.

He explained that the dialogue was timely, adding that the conference underscored the importance of strengthening the strategic alliance between the United States and Nigeria to tackle the current security challenges and emphasized the need to have an international perspective.

Mutfwang reiterated his readiness to address the problem from an informed position, emphasizing, “I have come better armed, better informed, better equipped to be able to deal with the security challenges. As a matter of fact, from here, I am proceeding straight to the Plateau State University, Bokkos, to have a look and have a first-hand information on the situation in PLASU and in Bokkos in general so that we can begin to put heads together to see how we can arrest the situation.”
