Gov. Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State said that the state had enjoyed 12 months of peace “without any serious security challenge”.
The governor said this when he presented 10 buses to all the security agencies in the state at a brief ceremony in Lafia.
“For the past one year now we have not had any serious security challenge, which shows that the security and stakeholders are synergizing seriously and very effectively”, the governor said
He said that the buses would be used to convey security operatives to wherever they might be needed in the course of their duties.
Al-Makura said the security operatives have been putting in their best in ensuring peace rein in the state.
He said that he was donating the vehicles to them to further encourage and assist them in effective crime management in the state.
Al-Makura said that the gesture was for the government to show appreciation to the security agencies for a job well done.
He said this would also encourage them as well as ensure that law abiding citizens of the state go to bed with their two eyes closed.
The governor said the issue of security should not be left in the hands of the security operatives alone but be seen as a collective effort.
Responding on behalf of other sister security agencies, the Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Lawal Shehu-Batsari, thanked the governor for the assistance.
He said the vehicles would spur them to do more in the area of crime control and prevention
