Gov. Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has called for increased collaboration between security agencies and civil authorities to take the fight to the criminal elements so as to checkmate their nefarious activities.

The governor advised the people of the area against breach of peace, while urging them to tolerate one another at all times.

“The importance of peace to human and societal development could not be overemphasised.

“As no society will achieve meaningful progress and development without peace as peace is priceless and non negotiable,” he said.

Sule assured that his administration would continue to be proactive and provide support to security operatives in the state.

He also promised to provide immediate vehicles and logistics support to the security agencies in order to boost their morale and efficiency.

Besides, the governor promised to construct Gurku-Dari as well as the Angwan Takwa-Moroa-Ninkoro roads in the area to ease access.

Responding, the Abaga Toni appreciated Sule for his love for the people of Kokona and for always taking proactive security measures to protect lives and property.
