Zamfara State Yusuf Idris Gusau in a statement made available to NationalUpdate on Sunday in Abuja, said the Chairman of the party in the state, Alhaji Tukur Umar Danfulani gave the assurance during a live phone-in programme on the Zamfara State Radio.
The chairman who commended the positive achievements attained in all sectors of the state by the Governor despite the challenges posed by insecurity, said youth empowerment and self reliance programmes will continue to be extended to all parts of the state.
He noted that subsequent Governments will find the state’s administration easier as the current administration has put in place all necessary structures including an improved Government House with state of the art facilities.
He also lauded the ongoing Cargo Airport project, roads construction and rehabilitation and provision of social services among others
According to him, these facilities will in turn bring more employment opportunities, reduce restiveness and help in ending banditry and other forms of criminality in the state.
He noted that trips undertaken by the governor within and outside the shores of the country have exposed the state which has vast deposit of various solid minerals to many multinational investors which will soon make the state the investment hub of the nation.
The chairman explained that the idea of the RUGA settlement initiated by Governor Matawalle is one of the best ways of addressing insecurity which was borne out of herder/farmer conflict.
He urged the federal government and the international community to support the State Government so as to achieve peace in the country.
While responding to some callers on how he will move the party forward, the chairman said, he will continue to engage stakeholders through consultation and ensure that all welfare coming to the party are shared by leaders of the party at the Local Government levels and through polling units so that no one will be left out.
Furthermore, he said, his leadership will ensure discipline among members and leaders as well as enhance respect and recognition to hiarachy and constituted authority.
He admonished communities to remove fear from their minds and rise up to the challenge by joining hands with security agents to patrol and protect their communities in resisting attacks by criminals.
The chairman urged the good people of the state to continue to pray for the success of the Matawalle Government and the leadership of the party so that the dividends of democracy will continue to reach all parts of the state.
