The Governor, who was accompanied by the Internal Security and Home Affairs Minister, Samuel Aruwan, said: “After your induction we came to formally welcome you to Kaduna State and Southern Kaduna in particular. You ‘re brave and excellent officers who’ve done well in the country at Faskari, Batsari and other flashpoints.
He said he was optimistic that the Special Forces would consolidate the gains already achieved by soldiers, police and other security agencies.
El-Rufai said: “Beyond the boots on the ground, the Kaduna State Government is conducting series of engagements with traditional rulers, religious leaders, community leaders, civil society and other agencies, and we are making progress.
