From Ibrahim Sidi Muh’d, Gusau
As the present administration re-strategises on its approach to addressing the twin problems of security and COVID-19 in the state, Governor Bello Matawalle has called for concerted efforts and prayers from the public to end these challenges.
Matawalle, who made the call through his Special Adviser on Public Enlightenment, Media and Communication, Malam Zailani Baffa, urged religious leaders and the public to intensify in prayers to see to the end of the twin menace facing the wellbeing of the people.
“It is unfortunate that at this time of our democratic journey, the twin problems of renewed upheavals and the threat of a worldwide pandemic of a strange disease are threatening the peace we have so hard earned over time”, Governor Matawalle observed.
“However, we are not relenting in our usual efforts at ensuring that the lives, property and dignity of all people in Zamfara state are protected”, Governor Matawalle added.
He said the state Government, which has not recorded any case of the Virus attack has put all measures in place to address any emergency in that regard.
“As for the resurgence of sporadic attacks in some local government areas of the state on innocent persons, our administration has re-strategised in its approach to addressing this problem and with the support of all and sundry, we shall bring these attacks to their very end”, Matawalle assured.
He therefore, called on all citizens in the state to cooperate fully with the government so that complete success will be achieved in the twin battle against these social and health challenges.
