The Emir of Kano, Dr Aminu Ado Bayero has commended the Kogi State government for its initiatives in the fight against insecurity.
The Emir who gave the commendation during a meeting with Governor Yahaya Bello in Abuja, urged the governor to sustain the onslaught against criminal elements in the state.
The Royal Father emphasized that no society develops in the absence of peace.
He explained that when one segment of the society is in turmoil, all others are ultimately open to inherent dangers and resultant effects.
He urged everyone to be fully involved in the fight against insecurity.
Governor Bello while responding, appreciated the Emir for recognizing his efforts in the fight against insecurity and also acknowledging the development strides the state had recorded under his administration.
Bello said before he assumed office, the Confluence state was the hideout of dreaded kidnappers and other criminal elements who reigned with impunity.
His administration, he stated, had however, changed the situation as kogi state is now a safe haven for citizens and prospective investors within and outside Nigeria.
Governor Yahaya Bello expressed gratitude to the Royal Father for his constant support for leaders in authority while urging him to continue to leave his doors open for young leaders and followers who want to tap from his wisdom.
