Minister of Sports Dalung To Buhari: Declare State of Emergency in Plateau, Benue, Zamfara

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to impose State of Emergency in Plateau, Benue, Zamfara and other troubled states.

“It is disheartening that Plateau state has been witnessing killings of innocent citizens in the last four to five days and this is very annoying and disturbing to the government and inhabitants of the state, he said Friday.

He said the way out is for the President to impose state of emergency in Plateau, Benue, Zamfara and Taraba in order to stop killings in the states.

“Collapse of local government administration had contributed immensely to the inability of the security personnel to arrest the problems.
