Kwankwaso-2By Umar Mohammed Puma

Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State, who is a leading All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential sspirant, disclosed that if he becomes President of Nigeria in 2015, a marshal plan for the rehabilitation of areas affected by insurgency would be put in place.

He added that “government is established for the security, welfare and happiness of the people. It is on public record that what we have done and are still doing in Kano State to assist victims of insurgency cannot be matched by any individual, groups or government and this indicates that change is possible.”

The Governor expressed sadness over the continuous deterioration of security situation particularly in the northeastern part of the country despite the imposition of emergency rule by the federal government, especially with gruesome massacre of 49 students in Potiskum, Yobe State.

While sympathising with government and people of Yobe State over the unfortunate incident, he also called for a minute silence in honour of those that lost their lives.

The Governor who stated this during the formal opening of his National Presidential Campaign Office in Abuja, today, Tuesday, called on President Goodluck Jonathan to “wake up to his responsibility and ensure the security of lives and property of Nigerians wherever they are.”

He said if he becomes the President of Nigeria, his priority will be restoring peace and security in every corner of the country, adding that “the APC is unreservedly committed to protecting and securing lives and properties of all Nigerians”.

“It is widespread belief among Nigerians that the present PDP administration is demonstrating inadequate commitment and insincerity in the fight against insurgency”, he said, adding “we believe that a different approach is required.”

In this regard the Presidential Aspirant disclosed that the APC is committed to ensuring that our military are better mobilized, adequately equipped, specially motivated and professionally fine-tuned.
