In a resolute commitment to combat crime and ensure the safety of residents, Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has pledged unwavering support to security agencies.
The governor expressed his determination to intensify efforts and provide the necessary backing to ensure the success of security forces in carrying out their duties effectively.
Fintiri made this announcement during a meeting in his office with the newly appointed Brigade Commander of the 23rd Armoured Brigade, Brigadier General P.K. Zawaya.
The outgoing Brigade Commander, Brigadier General M.J. Gambo, who led the delegation, conveyed his sixteen-month tenure in the state and his subsequent transfer to the Heritage Center in Abuja.
He expressed confidence in his successor, describing him as a thoroughly competent officer who would deliver on his mandate.
Assuring the governor of his commitment, the incoming Brigade Commander, Brigadier General P.K. Zawawa, pledged to bring his best efforts to the role, aiming to exceed expectations in maintaining security and order.
Governor Fintiri encouraged the new Brigade Commander to establish a robust synergy with the government and collaborate closely with sister security agencies.
The objective is to achieve a zero crime rate in the state, addressing issues such as banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery, farmer/herder clashes, and other nefarious activities.
The governor emphasized the importance of swiftly addressing these challenges to allow citizens to lead their normal lives without fear.
The collaborative efforts between the government and security forces are seen as pivotal in creating a safer environment for Adamawa State residents.
