The approval followed a letter of request to the assembly, which was read by the Speaker, Hamisu Chidari, during the house sitting on Wednesday.

According to the letter, the loan will be used to procure Close Circuit Television(CCTV) and other gadgets needed to strengthen security in the state.

Speaking on the issue, the Leader of the house, Labaran Madari, (APC-Warawa) said the reason for the loan was in order.
