Senator Representing Nasarawa South, Tanko Almakura says he will step up efforts in working closely with security agencies and stakeholders towards finding lasting solution to recurrent attacks on farmers in the zone.
Senator Tanko Almakura stated this while speaking with Radio Nigeria after performing the two rakat prayers to mark this year’s Eid-el-fitr in Lafia the Nasarawa State capital.
According to the law maker, insecurity is a major factor that retards development hence the need for every citizen to play participatory role in assisting the security agencies to secure the country.
Senator Tanko Almakura called on Nigerians irrespective of their beliefs not to lose faith in the country but use this period of Eid-el-fitr celebration for sober reflection in prayers, love and sacrifice for one another for the common good of all.
Meanwhile, the Eid-el-fitr celebration was generally peaceful in Lafia the Nasarawa State capital as security agencies were deployed to various praying grounds and major streets to ensure orderliness.
