The governor said this on Thursday in Kano when he received the new Commandant of the Police Academy, Wudil, CP Lawal Tanko-Jimeta on a courtesy.
According to him, some youths from the state are also trained recently as police constabulary as part of the state government’s efforts to prepare them.
He said the state government had provided a functional command control centre at the Nigerian Police headquarters in Kano with CCTV arrangements to monitor what is happening in the state.
“By doing so, we are able to control what is coming and what is going out of the city.
“With all these measures put in place by implication, security challenges are reduced,” the governor said.
“Some of the hostels are dilapidated and old, we are working closely with stakeholders so that the Tertiary Education Trust Fund can improve our infrastructure,” he said. (NAN)
