President has done well in tackling insecurity, says lawmaker.......

The House of Representatives member for Sumaila/Takai Federal Constituency of Kano State, Shamsudden Danbazau (APC-Kano), has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will beat other candidates to win the February 25 presidential election, from all indications.

The lawmaker said this while addressing National Assembly correspondents yesterday in Abuja.

Danbazau, who is also the son of retired a former Chief of Army Staff, Abdululrahman Danbazau, said the former Lagos State governor has the magic needed to turn the country around.

 “Asiwaju Tinubu has the experience to take the country out of the current doldrums. He is the man that has the experience to take care of all these issues affecting Nigerians. He will put the country together and douse tension,” he said.

 The lawmaker also said the APC had already won the 2023 election, going by recent developments across the country.

 Danbazau noted that the ruling party had been tested and found to have run the country very effectively.

 “Asiwaju Tinubu is a successful Chief Executive Officer. He has not failed in any of his endeavours. By voting for him, we are hiring him. By February, we will all vote for him and he will win the election,” he said.

 Commenting on the security challenges facing the country, Danbazau said Nigeria had made progress, adding that with the deployment of drones, the security situation had improved significantly.

“We need to have more geo-special mapping of the country where we can send drones to attack terrorists in every corner of the country.

 “From 2014 to 2018, I refused to go for Friday prayers for fear of bomb attacks. I had to remain in the house or pray in the barracks. But since 2016, I have been attending congregational prayers in public places.

 “I was at the Banex Plaza in Abuja when a bomb went off, just before the coming of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2014. Now, we don’t have such incidents.

 “The security challenges have been addressed and you can see what the President is doing by investing in heavily, acquiring drones, doing researches and sending our military officers to other countries to learn about tackling security challenges,” he said.

 Danbazau said the Buhari administration had done well in the area of security.

 Speaking on kidnaping, banditry and other crimes in some parts of the country, the lawmaker said the challenges were being addressed by the police in particular, adding that other countries also faced numerous security challenges at one time or the other.

 He noted that from records, the United States of America (U.S.A) has the highest incidents of school shootings, saying no country can eliminate security challenges completely.

“What is important is to have a level of safety where people can exercise their rights without impunity,” Danbazzau said.
