Also speaking on the issue of insecurity and nepotism, the President said; “Two South West Governors came to me to say cattle rearers are destroying farms in their states, I asked them what happened to the grassroot security panels from Traditional Rulers to Local Governments who meet regularly to identify the root of their problems and identify crooks within their environment and apprehend the criminals.

“I don’t like it when people campaign to become Governors and people trusted them with their votes and after winning, they can’t perform, they’re trying to push responsibilities to others.

“We have three tiers of Government, Federal, State and Local. We have killed the Local Government totally.

“We will send N300m as allocation to a Local Government, one Governor will ask the LG Chairman to sign that he collected N300m but he will give him N100m and the Chairman will keep quiet.

“Is that how we will continue?” Buhari asked.

“You’re saying someone who had gone through military and police training all his life should not be appointed to lead the military or police department he works with just because we must balance appointments?

“What are you saying? The system didn’t restrict anyone from joining the military or the police, and if you decided not to join, we will not force you.

“But you too will not force us to bring someone who is not qualified in training and experience when it comes to leadership of these institutions just because we want to balance some appointments”.
