Service Chiefs led by the Chief of Defence Staff, Lt.-Gen. Lucky Iraboh, on Tuesday evening in Katsina, the Katsina State capital, pledged to eliminate all forms of banditry presently rocking the country.
They were received by Governor Aminu Masari at the Government House as part of their tour of the Northwest.
He told Masari: “Following President Buhari’s marching order to ensure return of substantive peace and security in every parts of the country, we are partnering with critical stakeholders and governors, particularly like Katsina State. We identify you as very critical in driving home the presidential mandate, since you have a closer link with opinion moulders and traditional rulers. We recognise that quite a lot has to be done.”
The Service Chiefs further requested the governor not to be weary in the support his government has been rendering to the military, especially in logistics, and urged him to rally citizens to support them by volunteering critical information and other essential assistance.
Masari congratulated the Service Chiefs on their appointments and commended them for their decision to visit the troops on the frontlines.
