The governor also restated his administration’s commitment towards ending banditry in the state and noted that his administration is doing what it can to tackle insecurity in the state.
“God willing, the acts of banditry being perpetrated in Sokoto State will soon be nipped in the bud.
“Our ongoing negotiations with bandits is yielding good result, as the menace is generally reduced across the affected areas in the state,” Tambuwal said.
