NSA warns governors against using thugs to stifle opposition

The National Security Adviser, Retired Major General Babagana Monguno has warned state governors to desist from using thugs to prevent their opposition from erecting campaign materials in their states to avoid being chased by security agents.

Retired Major General Monguno while briefing Journalists at the State House on Thursday said the law enforcement agencies would be on the look out for erring governors and make sure of no hiding place for them.

He noted that President Muhammadu Buhari had given directives that the 2023 election must be free, fair and credible hence the need for governors to ensure a conducive environment for peaceful conduct of elections.
