Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state has reiterated his administration determination and readiness to work closely with the Nigerian Police for a responsive community policing across the state.
The renewed action according to Tambuwal was to ensure success of the community policing committee on ground in the state.
Tambuwal who had inaugurated the state’s Community Policing advisory committee a couple of weeks ago, told a high-powered presidential delegation on a condolence visit to the people and government of the state on the killings of people by bandits in the South-Eastern axis of the state, that his administration will “collaborate with the Inspector General of Police for it’s success.”
He assured the delegation led by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Gen. Babagana Monguno, that “we here in Sokoto are ready and fully prepared to give total support for the success of the mission in order to restore normalcy and peace.”
According to Tambuwal, ” there is already synergy among all the security services working in Sokoto state.
” They work together and we work together with them. And, the common objective is to re-secure the state, in particular, in the areas where we are having all of these challenges,” the Governor said.
The Governor further expressed gratitude to President Buhari for dispatching the team to his state and his prompt response when the crisis broke out recently.
He described the visit as a “soothing balm” that will “send some signal to our people that Mr President has indeed promised, is responding and considering our appeals to him when I visited some weeks back.”
