President Muhammadu Buhari has again assured residents of Kaduna State of the resolve of the armed forces to crush terrorists and criminal gangs operating in the State and other parts of the country.
He gave the assurance yesterday while speaking at a State Banquet to commemorate his official visit to the state.
President Buhari, who lauded the support Kaduna State had been providing to security agencies, noted the establishment of a ministry dedicated to internal security.
The president said it was noteworthy that the hard work of the present administration attracted USD2.8bn in foreign investment to the state since 2015.
In his remarks, Governor El-Rufai called for further military action to stop the activities of terrorists in the state.
‘‘We believe that further military action and more boots on the ground are needed to stop the terrorists that menace our people. But as we tackle security, we must also move forward with the things that our resources and planning enable us to do to make life better for our people,’’ he said.
