Katsina, Nigeria – President Bola Tinubu lauded the progress of security forces in combating insecurity in the North-West, announcing significant disruptions and dismantling of criminal networks.

The President’s remarks were delivered at the North-West Peace and Security Summit, organized by the North-West Governors’ Forum in Katsina on Monday.

Represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima, President Tinubu assured Nigerians that the advancements in security are just the beginning. The government is committed to ensuring a more secure environment for all citizens.

“Our military forces, through operations such as Operation Hadin Kai and Operation Safe Haven, have made true their promise to the nation by targeting groups like Boko Haram and bandits who have held sway for too long.

Enhanced border security and intelligence capabilities have enabled us to disrupt and dismantle these criminal networks. Many high-profile figureheads of these groups have been neutralized by our forces, and this is just the beginning,” he stated.

President Tinubu dismissed claims that insecurity in the North-West is a sectional agenda, emphasizing that instability in any part of the nation affects the whole. He reiterated that securing Nigeria has been a priority since his administration took office over a year ago.

The government’s strategies in combating insecurity in the North-West are showing positive results, he noted, and there will be no slowdown until insurgents are completely dismantled.

Acknowledging past criticisms about non-collaboration among security agencies, Tinubu highlighted ongoing efforts to strengthen inter-agency cooperation for a unified approach against insurgency.

Standard operating procedures and rules of engagement are being strictly followed in all operations, and the government is coordinating joint training exercises, fostering inter-agency communication, and ensuring comprehensive information sharing among security agencies.

Notable attendees at the summit included former President Muhammadu Buhari, the Sultan of Sokoto, Governor Dikko Radda, Minister of Defence Muhammad Badaru, National Security Adviser Nuhu Ribadu, and host Governor Umar Radda, among other North-West governors.
