Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has urged the people to be vigilant and security conscious to check the spate of abduction in parts of the state.
Mohammed made the call while inaugurating distribution of empowerment kits to 500 youth and women under the ‘Kaura Economic Empowerment Programme (KEEP)’ yesterday in Toro, Toro Local Government Area of the state.
He also charged local council chairmen and community leaders to be vigilant on strangers coming to settle in their respective areas.
“We have paid attention to the issue of security because it is key and Toro LGA is a place that is most disturbed by insecurity,” he said.
Mohammed, however, said that his administration had performed well in the areas of health, education and empowerment in the state.
The governor expressed his administration’s readiness to partner with the federal government and development partners to improve the quality of lives of the people of the state. (NAN)
