We’ll eliminate those causing insecurity in north, Tinubu tells supporters in Kaduna
Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says he will address security challenges affecting states in the north if he is elected president.
In April 2021, Bello Matawalle, governor of Zamfara, said there are over 30,000 bandits operating across six northern states.
Matawalle had listed the states as Zamfara, Katsina, Niger, Sokoto, Kebbi, and Kaduna.
Speaking on Tuesday at the flag-off of the APC’s north-west presidential campaign, held at the Ahmadu Bello stadium in Kaduna, the former Lagos governor also said he would prioritise job creation and boost agriculture.
He added that he would establish a marketing board that will give both farmers and consumers standard prices on agricultural produce.
“All those troublemakers, all those kidnappers, killers who are troubling the security of Kaduna and northern Nigeria, I assure you, we will eliminate them,” he said.
“Everyone of you should go home with determination. Check your PVC, and do not let them deny you your PVC. If you have not collected your PVC, please, in the name of Almighty Allah that gives power, go and collect your PVC.
“Today, the sun is brighter, the sky is clear, and we don’t want to talk too much. We want you to go back home in peace, happiness, and joy.
“Our hope is here. We will do everything to make you the young ones properly employed. We will create jobs.
“We will establish a marketing board that will give you the right prices, that will give you comfort in your homes, and make you better [people].”
