The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) has reiterated its support to President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to tackle the spate of insecurity in the country.
The PGF led by Kebbi State Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu renewed posture is coming against the backdrop of the massacre of no fewer than 35 people in Yelwa Zangam community behind the University of Jos (UNIJOS).
The unfortunate incident occurred less than 24 hours after the killing of two military officers and the abduction of a senior officer at the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), in Afaka, Kaduna State by suspected Boko Haram elements.
Buhari, who expressed concern over the heinous attacks, reiterated his determination to make a decisive end to the criminality besetting the nation.
The APC governors reaffirmed their commitment to continue to work with the Federal Government to roll out programmes aimed at creating jobs, fight insecurity, stimulate economic activity, reduce inequality and diminish poverty in Nigeria.
The governors particularly acknowledged Borno governor Babagana Zulum’s commitment to the fight against Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East geopolitical zone.
Felicitating with Zulum on his birthday anniversary, the governors said, “Your insightful and resolute passion to mobilise Nigerians towards ending insecurity and managing processes of governance is a source of inspiration.”
