The governor of zamfara State, Hon. Bello Mohammed Matawalle has revealed that the American government has exempted Zamfara from among terrorists states.
Speaking in Gusau Government House while receiving thousands of All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters who had embraced the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday, at the state Government House in Gusau, the state capital, the Governor said, “Zamfara was one of the states in Nigeria where the American Government warned its people to stay clear and avoid visiting the states.
“The American government had, just last week, exempted Zamfara State from dangerous places in Nigeria as a result of the peace accord and reconciliation initiatives by this administration in order to bring to an end all forms of criminality in the state.”
He appealed to the opposition parties to join hands with his government for sustaining the peace for the rapid development of the state.
He, however, warned that he would not hesitate to take drastic actions against any person or group of persons who tried to undermine the security arrangements put in place by his administration.
