Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has said his state, Kano, does need the newly launched northern security outfit, Operation Shege Ka Fasa, to address insecurity.
Speaking after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, February 7, Ganduje boasted that his administration has invested heavily on the security sector in the state.
The Kano state governor said an external or regional arrangement was not necessary given what has already been put in place.
According to Ganduje, Kano state has provided a conducive environment for the security agencies. He added that the state has a Command and Control Centre that facilitates inter-agency communications and collaborations.
Governor Ganduje added that his administration has built an army training centre, also with the sole aim of ensuring the state is safe for everybody.
He added that his administration’s free and compulsory education from basic to secondary levels is addressing the menace of mass out of school children and girl child marriage.
Similarly, the Arewa youths have disowned Operation Shege Ka Fasa. The youths on Thursday, February 6, said it distanced itself from the newly launched outfit.
