Senator Shehu Sani, a former Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, has opposed the release of security bailout to governors.

Governors in Nigeria had on Tuesday appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari for bailout funds to enable them to tackle insecurity in their various states.

In a post on his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, Senator Sani pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari not to give out bailout to anyone.

He, however, said, the government should adequately fund the Nigeria security agencies to enable them to tackle what he called ‘chronic security challenges.’

He wrote: “Dear President, don’t give out any bailout funds to anyone, rather fund and equip the Military, the Police and other security agencies to be able to fully tackle our chronic security challenges.”
