“If I am elected Nasarawa governor, security will be my topmost priority because there cannot be any development without adequate security,” he said.
Maku regretted that rural communities in the state had continued to suffer vicious attacks, and promised to make them peaceful because their inhabitants were responsible for the food consumed in the cities.
