The speaker, Niger State House of Assembly, Hon Ahmed Marafa, has urged the security agents in the state to step up their strategy to curb criminal activities especially cattle rustling in the state.
Hon Marafa who was represented by the deputy speaker, Mohammed Husseini at the resumption of plenary after over a month recess yesterday stated that the House was ready to collaborate with other arms of government and agencies for the progress of the state.
He stated that the clash between farmers and the herdsmen must also be checked, adding that the security agents in the state must devise a strategy for a renewed operation so that the state could remain peaceful as it was known for, over the years.
He said the expectation of the people about the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the state was high and that as lawmakers, they could not let the people down in delivering to them the desired services.
He also commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives during this year’s pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia and the people and government of Niger State over the death of the state accountant general, Shehu Kontagora.
