President Muhammadu Buhari has cited a practical example of how he dealt with some two governors from the South West who visited him at the State House to lament about insecurity in their individual states.
Buhari made the disclosure when he spoke on a national television, Arise TV on Thursday. He spoke on a host of topics including the infamous ban on twitter in the country by the federal government.

According to Buhari, he did not give ear to the two governors who narrated how the Fulani Herdsmen killed some farmers. He explained that he asked the governors to go and deal with their own problems since they have all been voted in office to solve the problems of the people.
In his words: “…I will give you an example: recently, two governors from the south-west came to tell me that the cattle rearers in some of the forests there have killed the farmers while the cattle were eating up their crops.
“But I told them, you campaigned to be elected and you were elected. So, I said go back and sort yourselves.
“This is because there has been a system as all of us could recall, even in local governments when there were security in each local government…
“They can’t just win an election and sit tight and think somebody will do their jobs for them. I just sent them back.” he added.
