Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state has assured Nigerians that the Muhammadu Buhari administration will end insecurity in the north and return the region’s lost glory.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, the governor noted that the President is doing all his best to end Boko Haram insurgency and banditry ravaging the northern region.
He said the President gave the assurance during a meeting with governors from northern states in Daura, Katsina State on Wednesday.
Matawalle noted that northern governors are committed to supporting the president’s efforts to end security challenges in the country.
He appealed to elites and other politicians, especially from northern Nigeria, to be united and face the challenges bedevilling the region’s growth and progress.
The governor urged northerners to support the government in looking for lasting solutions to poverty, banditry, and kidnapping.
He said: “The president assured that he will put an end to the menace and return the region and the country at large to its lost glories.
“It is time for us to end destructions and killings, lets nurture the habits of forgiveness of our wrongs, refrain from divisive tendencies and become united.
“We shall remain focused on the development of the nation and shun political differences irrespective of the party we belong.”
Matawalle appealed to leaders to continue rubbing minds toward proper solutions and developmental path of progress of the nation.
“Leaders must deliberate on solutions, refrain from selfish interests and greed to end unwanted killings and destruction of property,” he said.
“Insurgency, especially in the northeast and other banditry activities, have hindered economic activities, education, agriculture and other social activities in northern Nigeria.”
