Masari meets Buhari over insecurity in North West, North Central
Details of Masari’s meeting with Buhari over insecurity
President Buhari receives in audience Governor of Katsina State Rt. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari in State House on 5th Aug 2020.
Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State says the security situation in North West and North Central geo-political zones won’t be allowed to escalate to the status of the Boko Haram crisis in the North-East region.
Masari said this on Wednesday while fielding questions from State House reporters after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said serious efforts were currently being made to bring cases of banditry and other criminalities in the North-West region of the country to an end.
“Currently the military are in Katsina for their annual super camp so over 2000 of them are gathered in Katsina in order to really send a signal to the bandits that the military is ready and willing and they have the capacity to deal with the situation.
“The hope is that the military including the police and other security agencies have been given a marching order by the President to control the situation by all means and it is a task that must be done because we cannot allow the situation in the North-West to develop to a worrisome stage like it is in the North-East.”
He said despite the fact that some communities in nine local government areas of Katsina State had been affected negatively by the activities of bandits and other criminals, agricultural yields would be good.
