Gov Abba Yusuf Announces Plans To Open A Security Trust Fund

By Suleiman Anyalewechi, Aba

In a bid to provide adequate security in Kano State, otherwise widely seen as vulnerable to crises, Governor Abba kabir Yusuf has announced plans to establish a Security Trust Fund.

This is just as has promised to partner with all security Agencies in the state to support widows and other family members of security personnel who lost their lives in the defence of the Nation.

Governor Yusuf, who is still savouring his victory at the supreme court, said the planned security trust fund will aim among other things at curtailing insecurity in the state.

The Governor who spoke at the occasion of the celebration of this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day on Monday January 15, 2024 in Kano informed about his plans to secure the state in the face of the growing security challenges facing most parts of the country at the moment, adding that the support and assistance of eminent Kano residents and other Nigerians will be enlisted in the scheme.

“Very soon, we are going to invite some eminent Kano residents as well as other Nigerians we believe can contribute, so that we take measures to curtail the security situation in the state ” Governor Yusuf stated. 

According to the Governor, the living conditions of most of the widows and family members of the country’s fallen heroes are pathetic, and therefore deserved to be tackled urgently.

“After going around and seeing their conditions, I want to assure of my administration’s readiness to support them.

We are going to partner with the Brigade Commander and the Officer- In- Charge of this Remembrance Day Committee to find a workable, and more effective ways of assisting the families of our departed men.

Last month, we distributed some food items and other palliatives to them and other vulnerable groups in the state. I insisted that widows and orphans, as well as children of the fallen heroes be made part of the distribution process.

I am happy to say that the palliatives have reached all of them and we will continue to give them all the needed support,” Governor Yusuf noted.
