> Over 90 per cent of security challenges currently ravaging Nigeria are politically motivated, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State said on Saturday. According to him, it will therefore require political will to solve the security challenges in the country. The governor also called on the National Assembly to pass the Hunters Council of Nigeria Bill which is currently on the third reading in the Senate.He stated this when the Commander-General of HCN, Joshua Osotimehin, visited him on Saturday. The governor said that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), inherited a drifting political and economic situation when he assumed office in 2015 and would need the support of Nigerians to tackle the challenges. He said, “President Muhammadu Buhari inherited a country that was drifting security-wise, economic wise and otherwise. Mr. President inherited a country where bombs are being detonated every day in the North-East even in Abuja. “Mr. President inherited a security system that was already decaying, ill-motivated, ill-equipped and not well trained. Mr. President has reviewed the welfare package of all the security forces in this country severally. “I make bold to say that more than you can imagine, 90 per cent, of the insecurity we are witnessing today in our country is largely political, be it Boko Haram, banditry and farmers/herders clash, and even assassination sometimes, kidnapping.”
