APC ‘ll end insecurity challenges, Buhari pledges



Amina Anebi, Kaduna


THE All Progressives Congress (APC) will put an effective end to insecurity in Nigeria if it becomes the country’s ruling party, the former Presidential candidate of the Congress For Progress Change (CPC), Alhaji  Muhammadu Buhari declared yesterday.

He has also called on the Kaduna State Government to fish out the perpetrators of the recent ruthless and bloody attack on innocent citizens in Kaura Local Government of the state.

Buhari, who made the pledge when he led a delegation of his party on a condolence visit to the Chief of Marwa, Mallam Tagwi Sambo said: “It is only when the perpetrators are brought to book and punished according to the law of the land that it would serve as a deterrent to others”.

The former military ruler, while expressing happiness for being back home, said: “For me, I am not a stranger in Kaura because my elder brother is a close friend of the Chief of Marwa. So, I feel like I am at home here.”

Former Kaduna State Commissioner for Finance and now a chieftain of APC in the state, Alhaji Sulaiman Hunkuyi, who accompanied Buhari on the visit, condemned the attacks, saying he was around to commiserate with the Chief of Marwa over the incident.

The delegation later donated N2 million to the victims of the attack.

Chief of Marwa, Malam Tagwai Sambo thanked them for the visit and described the incident as an act of God. He expressed hopes that the incident will never occur again.

Other national officers of the APC who accompanied Buhari on the visit included the Deputy National Chairman, Aminu Bello Masari; and the National Secretary,  Mallam Nasir E-Rufai.

When a team of top flight media practitioners -- journalists, marketers, sales directors; indeed, the entire mix -- met on January 5, 2014, to review media practice in Nigeria, a conclusion became ineluctable: We must stop identifying the weaknesses of the items on offer and give Nigerians the real deal. The Morning Mail was thus born, to give the country a newspaper that is truly committed to the highest ideals of journalism. It is yet an evolving newspaper, but it is currently being piloted by Oluyinka Olujimi (LL.M UCLan, L.B., B.L.) as Publisher/CEO; respected ace cartoonist and administrator, Moses Ebong, as Executive Director (Brands and Marketing); and veteran political editor, Akinjide Akintola (Managing Editor), among others.
