The National Chairman, Nigeria Rescue Movement (NRM), Saidu Dansadau, has said ranches will not provide a sustainable solution to the herdsmen crisis ravaging northern parts of the country.
Dansadau, who is a former lawmaker told NAN on Friday in Maiduguri that state governors in the region must put up effective leadership and provide good governance to address spate of insecurity bedeviling the region.
He said that political leaders in the region should borrow a leaf from Lagos State on how the state controlled the insecurity caused by activities of miscreants of the Odua People’s Congress (OPC).
Dansadau noted that Lagos under the stewardship of Bola Tinubu and his successors evolved effective leadership recruitment system through the application of scientific approach.
He added that they also made consultations with stakeholders to provide good governance and tackle insecurity in the state.
He said that “unlike what most of our governors do in the North; they would bring somebody, a charlatan who will not perform better than them, as dealing with insecurity in Nigeria is about good governance’’.
“We formed this party to deal with insecurity so that we put in place a new leadership recruitment system through objective processes, when you have this and provide good governance is not a matter of arms and ammunition.
“Even, if we bring all the arms and ammunition from the US to Nigeria, bring all the military personnel in America to Nigeria, there will not be peace until you provide good governance.
“It is the governance that brings peace and when you have leaders that are unjust and unfair in the process of governance there will never be peace in that society,’’ he said.
