President Goodluck Jonathan said in Bauchi on Saturday that the Federal Government would not relent in its effort at addressing the problem of insecurity in some parts of the country.

Speaking when he visited the Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwanu Adamu, the President said that the problem must be tackled for the country to progress.

He explained that one of the measures was the introduction of various skills acquisition programmes to tackle the problem of youth restiveness and create opportunities for employment.

The President commended the emir for working towards ensuring peace in the state, adding that in spite of Bauchi being in the North East, it had remained relatively peaceful.

Jonathan also expressed satisfaction with the performance of the National Chairman of the PDP, Dr Ahmed Mu’azu, an indigene of the state.

He observed that with the appointment of Mu’azu as the National Chairman of the party, PDP had stabilised and continued to forge ahead.

The President, who thanked the emir for the warm reception accorded his entourage, however, observed that the Bauchi Central Prison was too close to the palace.

He, therefore, suggested the re-location of the prison, promising to talk to the Minister of Interior on the issue.

Earlier in his remarks, the emir had thanked the President for visiting him, expressing satisfaction with the cordial relationship existing between the people of the state and the Federal Government.

He also thanked the Federal Government for appointing some indigenes of the state in some key positions, as well as establishing a Teaching Hospital, Federal Medical Centre and National Obstetric Fistula Centre in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the President, along with Vice-President Namadi Sambo and some prominent politicians, was in Bauchi to attend the North East Zonal Unity Rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). (NAN)
