Kebbi APC guber candidate pledges to establish ministry to tackle political thuggery 

Dr Nasiru Idris, the All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Kebbi State, has pledged to establish a ministry that would be sensitising and creating jobs for the youth towards tackling political thuggery in the state.

Idris, who is also the Kauran Gwandu in Gwandu Emirate, made the disclosure while addressing youth at a sensitisation programme on negative consequences of drug abuse and political thuggery held at Yauri in Yauri Local Government Area (LGA) of the state on Monday.

The Voice Media Trust (VMT NEWS) reports that the programme was organised by Rilwanu Abarshi Impact Network with the sole aim of curtailing the scourge of drug abuse and the menace of political thuggery in the society.

The candidate, who was represented by Alhaji Kabiru Sani-Giant, Chairman, Nasir Idris Campaign Movement and leader of  S7-4-BAT-2023, Tinubu/Shettima North-West Campaign Organisation, observed that political thuggery had become part and parcel of Nigerian politics which must be addressed.

“We observed that these menace are as a result of unemployment but if we eventually come to power, we are going to establish a ministry that will be mandated to fish out drug addicts and thugs across the state.

“The ministry will sensitise such category of persons and create job opportunities to enable them not only become self reliant but also employers of labour and useful members of the society.

“When these youth have something doing, nobody will lure them to engage in anything thuggery again, this we promised and by the grace of God Almighty we are going to do that,” he pledged.

While acknowledging that thuggery in Nigerian politics had become a norm, Idris advised the youth to be very cautious by conducting themselves in electioneering campaigns and play politics according to its rules and regulations.

The flag-bearer lauded the organisers’ efforts, advising them to sustain the tempo to go down to all wards and polling units of not only Ngaski and Yauri LGAs but across the entire state.

He said: “This is a laudable programme that will certainly save our teeming youth who either engage in drug abuse or political thuggery. Therefore, I urge you to keep the flag flying by spreading your tentacles to all nooks and crannies of Kebbi State for the good of the society.”
