Hon. Bello Mohammed Matawalle, the state Governo of Zamfara, has reacted to the utterances credited to All Progressive Congress (APC) that his administration was responsible for criminal activities and harboring bandits in the Zamfara State.
According to a press statement signed by Comrade Zailani Bappa, Matawalle, the Special Adviser to the Governor on media and public enlightenment, accused All Progressive Congress of fuelling the criminal activities during former Governor Abdul Aziz Yari’s unfortunate eight-year tenure.
The statement noted that Nigeria leader President Muhammadu Buhari was satisfied with the peace accord and reconciliations process initiated by Matawalle’s administration as the rate of crime in the State had reduced.
“We all are living witnesses to the fact that during Yari’s tenure, Zamfara state was convicted as a colony of banditry in the whole world, and there is no doubt about that.
“I don’t want to join issues with Abdul Aziz Yari and his cohorts because they are out only to distract the attention of this administration and make it a failure,” he said.
According to Governor Matawalle, agricultural activities moved with the lowest ebb as the farmers in the State abandoned their farming activities due to the fear of terror attacks.
Governor Matawalle maintained that Yari’s same administration closed down all functional markets in Zamfara State, making the people live in abject poverty and penury.
“We are not claiming that insecurity has been eliminated, but it is on record that terror attacks had reduced drastically in the state, unlike Yari’s unfortunate eight years tenure when people were running away from the State,” he added.
