Umar Bago, the new governor of Niger, says his administration will pay serious attention to tackling insecurity in the state.

Speaking after taking the oath of office on Monday, Bago promised to partner with security agencies at all levels to address security challenges.

“Let me at this juncture reiterate to Nigerlites the pillars of our campaign promises and our policy initiatives, which will be the fulcrum of the development agenda of our administration,” NAN quoted Bago as saying.

“In other words, we shall pay serious attention to the following strategic areas. The most compelling task ahead of us is to tackle insecurity with the intensity and urgency it deserves.


“Security is a serious matter as enshrined in our constitution, the federal republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), that the primary purpose of government is security and welfare of citizens.

“Therefore, we shall boldly defend that constitutional tenet and ensure that security will be given premium in our administration.

“Therefore, we shall collaborate effectively with security agencies at the national and sub-national levels to combat crime and ensure the safety of lives and property throughout our state and beyond.”


Over the years, Niger has been under the threat of terrorists who operate actively in the state and other parts of the country.

Many residents have been reportedly killed, while some have been rendered homeless across many LGAs in the state.

Shiroro, Munya, Rafi, Magama, Wushishi, and Rijau are some of the LGAs where terrorist activities are active.
