Vice-President Kashim Shettina has assured that the federal government would deploy new strategies to fight armed banditry, kidnapping and other security challenges in different parts of the country.

The Vice President stated this after he held a closed door meeting with former President Muhammadu Buhari at his residence in Daura, Katsina State, on Saturday.

This assurance came a day after the Katsina State governor, Malam Dikko Umaru Radda, appealed to the federal government to deploy more men and resources to support the state in its trying times of incessant banditry attacks.

Shettima said the federal government would deploy all the resources and expertise needed to restore security and lasting peace to the affected areas.


He said the Tinubu administration was determined to fulfill its campaign promises to Nigerians despite the economic challenges while urging Nigerians to continue to support and pray for the administration.

On arrival at the Umaru Musa Yar’adua International Airport in Katsina, the VP was received by the Katsina State governor, Malam Dikko Umaru Radda and other top government officials in the state.

The Vice President who was accompanied by the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Senator Atiku Bagudu, and that of Agriculture and Food Security, Alhaji Abubakar Kyari as well as former Imo State Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, also paid homage to the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruk Umar at his palace in Daura.
