Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, representing Sokoto North Senatorial District, has said the National Assembly is fully committed to providing adequate funding for all the nation’s security agencies.
This is contained in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Bashir Rabe Mani, and issued to newsmen Monday.
The statement said that, Senator Wamakko disclosed in Sokoto, when the Officers and Men of the State Command of the Peace Corps of Nigeria led by their new Commander, Sani Balarabe, paid him a courtesy call.
Senator Wamakko stated that, the gesture would enable the security agencies to be properly staffed and equipped.
This, he noted, will bolster the security of lives and property, as well as motivate their Officers and Men to be well motivated to put in their best in the discharge of their duties.
Senator Wamakko further stressed the need for inter-agency cooperation amongst the security agencies in the country.
He also urged the Officers and Men of the Command to shun acts of extortion, intimidation, indiscriminate arrests and detention of innocent residents of the state.
“This is the only way the command can remain relevant, while the people will have confidence in its officers and men,” he added.
The Commander, Sani Balarabe, had earlier commended Senator Wamakko for his relentless efforts to ensure the sustainable peace, unity and even socioeconomic development of Sokoto State and beyond.
Balarabe also described Senator Wamakko as a father to all the people of the state, pledging to live above board in the discharge of their duties.
