Lawmaker lauds NAYES for curbing crimes in Nasarawa

The Chairman, Nasarawa Assembly’s House Committee on Youth and Sports, Musa Salihu-Iyimoga, has commended members of the Nasarawa State Youth Empowerment Scheme (NAYES) for assisting other security agents in curbing crimes across the state.

Salihu-Iyimoga, member representing Doma/North Constituency at the state House of Assembly, gave the commendation when the committee played host to the management of NAYES in Lafia on Friday.

He said that members of the scheme had helped a lot in securing lives and property of people of the state, hence the need for the applause.

The lawmaker said that his committee had decided to invite the management of the scheme to assess the scheme’s 2020 budget performance.

“Your members are doing well in assisting other security agents in fighting crimes across the state.

“The committee will continue to assist you in order to move the scheme and the state to greater heights,” Salihu-Iyimoga said.

The chairman affirmed the committee’s determination to collaborate with the state government to improve the standard of living of youths across the state.

Earlier, the General Manager, NAYES, Abdullahi Labaran-Maina, had commended the committee for supporting the activities of the scheme to succeed in the state.

Labaran-Maina gave assurance of his men’ readiness to be up and doing in helping other security agents in protecting lives and property of the people.

“I also want to assure you that we will always assist the security agents in curtailing crimes in the state.

“Members of the scheme will also continue to ensure free traffic and environmental cleanliness across the state,” he said.
