Governor Bello Mutawalle

Enemies of Our State Plotting Unlawful Demonstrations, Says Zamfara Govt

The Zamfara government says it has uncovered plots by some persons to disrupt peace through “unlawful demonstrations” across the 14 local government areas of the state.

Zailani Bappa, special adviser on public enlightenment, media and communications, to Bello Matawalle, the governor, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

Bappa said the aim of the protest is to “give the wrong impression that the people of Zamfara State are dissatisfied with the efforts of the state government in maintaining peace in the rural areas.”

“The government of His Excellency, Dr Bello Muhammad (Matawallen Maradun) wishes to draw the attention of all and sundry to be wary of these enemies of the state and resist their desperate attempt to draw the hands of the clock backwards simply to discredit the solid achievements recorded in the last six months in the area of peace and reconciliation,” the statement read.

“We wish to put on record that peace is still reigning in Zamfara State and any hiccups are manifestation of a decade long of disharmony, friction and wanton death caused by acute maladministration in the past which the present government is working hard to address.

“The government of His Excellency, Dr Bello Muhammad hereby warn that it will not fold its arms and watch saboteurs to jeopardise the progress so far recorded in the area of peace and reconciliation in the state.”
