President Muhammadu Buhari said his administration is doing “its utmost” to crush and win the war against insecurity currently ravaging the North and other parts of the country.
Buhari made the statement on Saturday, January 22nd, 2022 at a banquet in his honour, organised by the Kaduna State Government to round up his two-day official visit to the state.
He said, ‘‘I wish to assure the people and government of Kaduna State that the Federal Government is doing its utmost to contain and crush the terrorists menacing our citizens and their property in parts of the country. On behalf of the Federal Government, I commend the efforts of the Kaduna State Government to respond to the demands of development.”
‘‘The relationship between our tiers of government represents an instance of successful collaboration between the national and State governments for progress, peace and prosperity. I urge Malam Nasir El-Rufai to push on and not relent in his efforts to accelerate change and progress in Kaduna State.”

President Buhari further hailed Governor El-Rufai on his major infrastructure drive in Kaduna state, saying he’s glad to witness the changes personally.
” I was here in 2017 to commission the hatchery and feed mill project of Olam, a multinational agribusiness company that has sited a major factory in Kaduna. In August 2019, I had the honour to commission Phase 2 of the Zaria Water Project and a road project.”
‘‘Therefore, I am not surprised that Nasir El-Rufai and his team have undertaken such a major investment in infrastructure development. I am glad to say I have seen with my own eyes the remarkable changes across all the three Senatorial zones,’’ he said.
Governor El-Rufai in his speech, called for the deployment of more soldiers to bring the menace of the bandits to an end.
He said “we believe that further military action and more boots on the ground are needed to stop the terrorists that menace our people. But as we tackle security, we must also move forward with the things that our resources and planning enable us to do to make life better for our people.“
