John Sura, Plateau State governorship aspirant has promised to fight insecurity in the state with the major focus on banditry if elected into office.
Mr Sura stated this on Sunday in Abuja while submitting his nomination and expression of interest forms at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Secretariat.
The retired general stated that the state needed leaders with character, capacity and ability to stand for the people, pointing out he possesses the leadership traits to restore peace in the state.
Mr Sura also mentioned that he could secure the people and make them return to their ancestral homes to continue farming and other activities.
The governorship aspirant promised to re-establish the Plateau private security outfit, codenamed ‘Operation Rainbow’, established during Governor Jonah Jang’s administration.
“We will look at its inadequacies and also see how we can restructure and redeploy it to assist the federal security forces,” said Mr Sura.
