    Zamfara govt won’t condone laxity, complacency in fight against banditry –Matawalle

    Governor Bello Matawale of Zamfara has warned that the state government will not condone laxity or complacency in the fight against banditry.

    Matawalle gave the warning while swearing in 18 commissioners, 16 special advisers, Secretary to the State Government, Head of Service and three Director-Generals.

    ”We will not condone laxity or complacency at this critical time of the state’s journey out of the woods as the bandits are fast being routed out.

    The governor reviewed the successes being recorded as a result of the recent security measures taken to route out the bandits in the state.

    ”Hundreds of the bandits have been killed and several others arrested along with hundreds of informants and their collaborators.

    Matawalle also took time to review his recent visits to the US and Turkey where he said the two-week official engagements ended with positive results.

    The governor said that many companies signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the State Government on wide range of developmental initiatives.

    ”The MoUs cut across science, health, education, security and commerce.

    ”This will be consolidated on Oct. 20 when the Turkish President will visit Nigeria and meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

    ”Additionally, the MoU with Cuba is in the ares of science, health and technology.

    ”This will enable students from Zamfara studying in those fields in Cuba”, he said.

    The governor also discussed with the Board of Directors of Medical Assistance Programmes(MAP) International on medical health supplies, particularly for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps, and the upgrade of medical equipment in Zamfara.
