Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and the Sultan have been consistent in working closely with the federal government in its fight against armed banditry in the state and other forms of criminalities in other parts of the country.
“Mr President has directed us to express gratitude to you for all the support you have overtime been extending to his government specifically on security matters and other associated social ills that have been bedevilling this country of ours,” Malami said.
While conveying the felicitations of the President to the Sultan on the wedding, Malami further stated that President Buhari also appreciates the monarch’s contribution towards the attainment “of the desired peace in the country.”

And, we will continue to do our best to see that peace, stability and development reign in Nigeria.”
While saluting the security agencies and the police for their roles in curbing insurgency in the state, the Sultan charged all Nigerians to be security ambassadors as it is an issue that affects all citizens and not only “those who wear uniforms.”
