By Abdallah el-Kurebe
Security Watch Africa, based in Dubai, United Arab Emirate (UAE) has bestowed the “Best Security and Safety Conscious State Governor in West Africa” on Sokoto state governor, Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko.
Receiving the award from the delegation that was in Dubai for the award on his behalf, led by the state Information Commissioner, Alhaji Danladi Bako in Sokoto on Monday, Wamakko expressed his happiness but assured that security of lives and property is a collective responsibility.
“The award will spur me to do more to ensure sustainable peace and unity of the state and Nigeria generally,” he added.
Explaining APC’s choice of Gen. Buhari, he stressed that “Nigeria will also be more secure under Buhari and he will work to diversify the nation’s economy,” adding that if elected, Buhari would also ensure that the nation no longer depended solely on oil revenues.
“Buhari is a personality that symbolizes good governance and has no tolerance for corruption,” Wamakko eulogized the general.
He appealed to Nigerians to vote the APC in 2015, which he assured would be a vote for a change. “I am therefore appealing to the people of the state to vote APC en masse, come 2015.”
