Zamfara APC not happy with my success in fighting insecurity- Matawalle


By Ismail Auwal

Governor of Zamfara state, Alh. Bello Muhammad Matawalle, has cried out over what he called “politicization of security” by the opposition.

The governor said in an interview that with respect to the insecurity in Zamfara “today is better than yesterday.”

The governor boasted that, “all major markets were closed before I became the governor of the state.”

He further said that with the help of God, and through dialogue, the state was able to re-open many routes, including the one from Jibia to Talatan Marafa.

“Four to five years back, the route was completely closed with no vehicular movements,” he added.

Matawalle also alleged that the opposition APC in the state is interested in seeing the killings continues; and noted that the former governor of the state Abdulaziz Yari was the first to sign a peace accord with the kidnappers.

“They want us to fail the way they failed. They want me to step down from the Chief Security Officer of the state,” he cried out.

“ everybody know in the history of the state that the former governor was the first to signed peace accord with the bandits”

“He called the leader of the Bandits, Buharin Daji, gave him Cars, motorbikes, and access to the government house”, he added

When asked of the APC’s accusation that he was funding the bandit’s activities in Nigeria, the governor said the ruling party has already sent a delegation to apologise on behalf of the party.
