Tambuwal Hails Buhari, Nigerian Army For Collaboration With State Government Over Security

Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Governor of Sokoto State, has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for his ongoing efforts to work with states across the country to eliminate insecurity.

Tambuwal, the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF), also expressed gratitude to the Nigerian Army for coordinating with state governors in the ongoing fight against insurgency.

The governor was speaking during a courtesy visit on Monday in Sokoto by team members of Senior Course 45 of the department of Land Warfare at the Armed Forces Command Staff College and Staff College (AFCSC), Jaji, Kaduna state, who thanked the AFCSC for choosing Sokoto to host the contingent.

The contingent, led by Nigerian Army Garrison Commander Brig. Gen. Taiye Ahmed, consists of 38 course participants, five of whom are from other countries.

Tambuwal acknowledged that Nigeria is facing great security challenges, particularly in some parts of Sokoto state. “It is correct to say that Sokoto state is facing threats of insecurity, as some local government areas of the state are involved.”

He lauded the Nigerian Army for playing a pivotal role in ensuring that peace and security prevail in the state and the country in general; while pledging to sustain his administration’s support for it at all times.

In his remarks, the team leader of the Senior Course 45 of the AFCSC, Brig. Gen. Farouk Mijinyawa, while conveying the college’s appreciation, on behalf of its Commandant, also thanked Tambuwal for hosting the group.

“We are aware that this is prime time for you. We are also mindful of the many caps you’re wearing as Governor and Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum among others.

“As a result, your finding time to receive us, despite your tight schedule, is an honour. It is, no doubt a testimony of your selfless service to the state and the nation at large.

“It is also a demonstration of your efforts at ensuring peace, harmony and sustainable development of the state and our dear country,” Mijinyawa said.

He explained that the course has a robust curriculum, part of which is operational visits to regions of the country to avail its participants on how to manage military campaigns in combating insecurity.

He said Sokoto was selected because of the successes recorded in the fight against insurgency in the state.
