FG to unveil initiative on addressing insurgency, poverty – Shettima

Vice President Kashim Shettima says the Federal Government will soon unveil an initiative that will address insurgency and poverty, especially in the Northern region.
Mr Olusola Abiola, the Director of Information, Office of the Vice President, in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said the vice president spoke with newsmen during a condolence visit to Kano State.
Shettima, accompanied by the Deputy Senate President, Sen. Barau Jibrin, among others, were in Kano to commiserate with the government and people of the state over the passing away of elder stateman, Prof. Abubakar Galadanci.
“President Bola Tinubu is determined to define the meaning and concept of modern governance, and the crisis we have in the Northwest, which is further accentuated by poverty.
“The social exclusion is also something that the President is determined to frontally confront and in the coming weeks he is going to unveil the Pulaku solution.
“Unless we want to engage in an endless war of attrition, there cannot be a military solution to the crisis in the Northwest; there has to be a kinetic and non-kinetic solution.
“In the next couple of weeks, we will unveil the Pulaku solution which will address the grievances and social exclusion of our Fulbe cousins in the Northwest and also towards addressing the root causes of all the banditry and insurgency in the nation,” he said.
Earlier on arrival in Kano, Shettima was received by Gov. Abba Yusuf, and proceeded to the residence of the Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Ado Bayero, where he commiserated with him on the passing away of Galadanci, expressing President Tinubu’s condolences.
From Kano, Shettima flew to Katsina on another visit to condole with renowned businessman, Alhaji Dahiru Mangal, over the demise of first wife, Hajiya Aisha Dahiru, who died Saturday evening in Abuja after a brief illness. (NAN)
