There Won’t Be Need For Security To Travel On Train To Kaduna – El-Rufai

Local

Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-rufai, has said that people would not need to be provided with security to travel on the train to the state any longer if the current clamp down on terrorists is sustained.

Naija News reports that the governor made the statement on Wednesday, September 14, while declaring open the 4th edition of the Kaduna Book and Art Festival. At the event, El-Rufai commended the efforts of security agencies for mounting a sustained offensive attack against terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and other criminal groups in the state. He said: “In the last six weeks there has been improved offensive operation against criminals and we are confident if it is sustained, people can drive comfortably without any security or taking the train to Kaduna.” According to the governor, he is hopeful of making Kaduna a state where everyone feels safe, with no special provision for indigene, tribe or religion. El-Rufai said that was his vision for the state and that what was important to him is common humanity, such that everyone who chooses to live, work and pay tax is indigenous to Kaduna. Having thanked the organisers of the festival making the state their venue for the event in spite of the negative reports about Kaduna, El-Rufai said he is happy to see many young people doing so well in poetry and writing, doing wonderful things with their lives. “The future of Kaduna is in the hands of young people, particularly women; we are determined to give them opportunities to excel,” he said. El-Rufai also admonished the citizens ahead of the 2023 general elections to vote for people who would address their problems not those who created them.
