The Zamfara State Governor, Hon. Bello Mohammed Matawalle has lamented that when he took over the mantle of leadership from former governor, Abdulaziz Yari, he met on ground a daunting task of piecing together a fragmented society bedeviled with unprecedented security situation.
When I took over, the state was literally under siege by bandits, kidnappers and other miscreants.
But I confronted the ugly situation with great valour, using the versatile experience as former chairman, House committee on security and intelligence for four years,” he said.
The governor further said that lack of proper moral upbringing contributed seriously to security challenges in the state, urging the parents to ensure that their children grow up under strict care and discipline, noting that most of the crimes in the state are being perpetrated by unemployed youths.
