Alhaji Ahmed Matane, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), said this when he received Victims Support Fund (VSF), an NGO, led by its Executive Director, Prof. Nana Tanko, in his office in Minna on Friday.
He expressed the government’s readiness to partner any non-governmental organisation toward fashioning out strategies that would forestall any breach of security in the state.
He commended VSF members for their tremendous support to victims of insurgency, vulnerable persons and urged them not to relent as the act would assist in dealing with insurgency in the country.
Earlier in her remarks, Prof. Tanko said that VSF responded to urgent needs to promote community recovery and stability by facilitating restoration of livelihood.
She said that VSF, which is a knowledge-driven and programme-based organisation, had also built a partnership for support and transformation of victims of terrorism and insurgency in Nigeria.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the VSF entourage include: the Director-General, Niger State Emergency Management Agency, Alhaji Ibrahim Inga, and other directors of the agency. (NAN)
