“Again they forget that when a state of emergency was declared in some part of the north-east during Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria did not turn a failed nation talk more of the present-day”.
He added that it is necessary that all stakeholders should join in the fight with the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari to overcome the present challenges facing the nation.

All the social intervention programs that the FG has initiated for the citizens of Nigeria, I have ensured that Katsina Central has been a beneficiary. Even though the spaces are limited, I have carried the people along.
He said during the increased spate of banditry in the state, he co-sponsored two different motions which drew the Federal Government’s attention to the insecurity in the State, noting that the situation is very much better at the moment saying as citizens, let them all be security conscious and assist the government with relevant information to nip any situation in the bud.
