In his remarks, Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State, described the establishment of the squad as timely especially due to the issue of parents withdrawing their children from schools.

Mr Masari, represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mustapha Inuwa, urged the Corps to train more women to cover the entire nation.
