OrderPaperToday – The Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has given assurances to all residents of the state to go about their daily activities without any fear of molestation.
The governor also promised residents of adequate security arrangement to secure lives and properties.
This is coming against the back drop of heightened security situation in other parts of the country especially the southeast region, heightening fears of possible reprisal attacks in the north.
Governor Tambuwal’s assurance is contained in a press statement issued by his spokesperson, Imam Imam, on Saturday.
Tambuwal stated that what is happening in other parts of the country, especially the south east, will have no negative effect on residents of Sokoto.
According to the statement: “Governor Tambuwal has urged for calm. He has met severally with security agencies, religious and traditional rulers. He is also in touch with members of the resident communities.
“In addition, the Governor is in touch with his counterparts in other states to see how they can synergise to ensure that peace is maintained.
“We’re happy to note that so far, business premises, markets, worship centres and public gatherings have continued unhindered. This administration is committed to sustaining our cherished status as the most peaceful State in Nigeria.”
