The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has promised to end insecurity in Nigeria.

Tinubu vowed to ensure full exploration of the oil reserves in the Benue trough and Chad basin for the development of the North and the country.

The former Lagos helmsman spoke on Monday at a meeting with some Northern groups in Kaduna.

The APC flagbearer said there was abundant oil and gas in the Benue Trough, Chad Basin, and other prospective locations in the North.

Tinubu pledged to complete the ongoing Abuja-Kaduna-Kano and the trans-Saharan gas pipeline project.

“I acknowledge the primacy of security as the number one function of government”, NAN quoted him saying.

“My administration will give it all the necessary attention and consolidate on the recent investments.”

Tinubu said as governor, he adopted many initiatives, especially the Security Trust Fund, to address many needs of the security forces.

The APC co-founder added that he returned order, tamed what could have been an ethnic war and made Lagos one of the safest states.

The politician further assured that all elements threatening peace, security and unity will be dealt with.

“I guarantee you, we will end kidnapping and banditry”, he promised.
