We’ll end insecurity, poverty in north — Shettima assures

President Bola Tinubu’s administration has said that it will unveil an initiative to address insurgency and poverty, among other challenges confronting Nigerians, especially those living in the northern region.

Vice President Kashim Shettima made this known in a chat with newsmen while on a condolence visit to Kano.

Shettima was in the city to commiserate with the government and people of Kano over the passing of elder statesman Alhaji Abubakar Imam Galadanci.

“The President is determined to define the meaning and concept of modern governance, and the crisis we have in the northwest which is further accentuated by poverty. The social exclusion is also something that the President is determined to frontally confront and in the coming weeks, he is going to unveil the Pulaku solution.

“Unless we want to engage in an endless war of attrition, there cannot be a military solution to the crisis in the northwest. There has to be a kinetic and non-kinetic solution.

“In the next couple of weeks, we will unveil the Pulaku solution which will address the grievances and social exclusion of our Fulbe cousins in the northwest and also towards addressing the root causes of all the banditry and insurgency in the nation,” he added.

The Vice President who was received by Governor Abba Yusuf, proceeded to the residence of the Emir of Bichi, HRH, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero, where he commiserated with him on the passing away of the late Imam Galadanci, expressing President Tinubu’s condolences.

Shettima, on behalf of Tinubu, expressed his condolences, and prayed to Allah to grant the deceased eternal rest and console the entire Galadanci family.
