Zamfara State Governor, Bello Mohammed Matawalle has said his administration would continue to put serious measures to end the insurgency ravaging the state.
Speaking with Daily Post in Gusau, the state capital in a phone conversation, the Governor noted that bandits’ activities in the state have gone out of control, lamenting that all the measures he was implementing in the state were not bringing any positive results.
The Governor maintained that he had been doing all he could to ensure the security of lives and properties in the state, pointing out that some popular politicians were sabotaging his efforts.
“Before I was installed as the Governor of the state, I had never accused any government of the state but why are they betraying my efforts of restoring peace and harmony in the state”
Matawalle insisted that if the Federal Government can implement his suggestion of declaring a state of emergency in the north, he would be very happy to step down.
“If you observe very well, the insecurity situation resides very much in the north, unlike the southern part of the country so we must be mindful of this” he added.
