Tinubu working on providing lasting solution to insecurity in North West — Shettima


Vice-President Kashim Shettima recently reiterated the unwavering commitment of the Bola Tinubu administration to address the pressing issues of banditry and security challenges that have plagued the North-West region of Nigeria. Speaking during an interaction with journalists in Kano on Sunday, the Vice-President provided insights into the government’s plans to tackle the prevailing security crisis.

During his visit to Kano, Vice-President Shettima extended his condolences to the family members of the late Abubakar Galadanci, whose passing on Friday had deeply saddened the nation. However, amid the somber occasion, the Vice-President took the opportunity to shed light on the President’s determination to deliver a lasting solution to the security challenges afflicting the North-West region.

According to Vice-President Shettima, President Bola Tinubu has already concluded plans to unveil a comprehensive strategy aimed at effectively combating banditry and addressing the alarming rate of killings in the region. This forthcoming strategy encompasses both military and non-military measures, demonstrating a multifaceted approach to tackling the crisis.

The Vice-President emphasized that the issues facing the North-West are deeply rooted in poverty and social exclusion. Acknowledging these underlying causes, President Tinubu is resolute in his determination to address them head-on. In the weeks to come, the President will unveil the highly anticipated “Fulaku” solution, specifically designed to address the grievances and social exclusion faced by the Fulani population in the North-West. By addressing the root causes of banditry and insurgency in the region, the administration aims to foster lasting peace and stability.

The Vice-President further highlighted that President Tinubu’s governance philosophy seeks to redefine the meaning and concept of modern governance. It is under this guiding principle that the administration is focused on tackling the crisis in the North-West, which is intricately tied to poverty and social exclusion. Vice-President Shettima emphasized that a military solution alone is insufficient. Therefore, a combination of kinetic (military) and non-kinetic (non-military) approaches will be adopted to address the complexities of the situation.

The Vice-President expressed the imperative of avoiding an endless war of attrition. Rather, the administration seeks to implement a holistic approach that addresses not only the immediate security concerns but also the underlying socioeconomic factors contributing to the crisis. This comprehensive strategy aligns with the administration’s commitment to promoting social welfare and inclusivity.

In conclusion, Vice-President Shettima’s statements reaffirm the resolve of the Bola Tinubu administration to confront the security challenges in the North-West region. By implementing a multifaceted strategy, addressing the root causes of the crisis, and emphasizing the importance of social welfare and inclusivity, the government aims to bring about sustainable solutions. As the administration prepares to unveil the “Fulaku” solution, the nation awaits with hope that these measures will yield positive outcomes, fostering peace, security, and development in the region.
