Governor of Zamfara State in the North West Nigeria, Bello Mohammed has decried the youth’s disdain for leaders in the North, particularly, the traditional institutions, saying, its an act of indiscipline.
Governor Matawalle, who spoke on Monday stressed that the North is in disarray due to lack of recognised central leadership who can commonly be rallied around socially and politically.
According to him, the menace of banditry, armed robbery and kidnappings has given credence to absence of peace in many societies.
He made the observations when the emirs and local government Chairmen of communities of Anka, Bungudu, Bukkuyum and Maru, paid him a courtesy call at the Government House.
Governor Matawalle further observed that no society can progress and enjoy a lasting peace when it looks down upon its leaders with disrespect. “That is why I directed that this year, I will receive no community at the Government House except it is led by its traditional ruler”, Matawalle pointed out.
“We must start according respect and dignity to our rulers like it was before, because Allah gave them the position which we have to recognise” Matawalle observed.
“That is why today, my administration is providing a Government Lodge in each of the 14 Local Government Areas of the state so that henceforth, we shall be the ones going down to the Emirs’ palaces for Sallah homage to spend a day or two with them and their people at the grassroots” Matawalle disclosed.
Governor Matawalle also warned on the need to renew commitment to genuine fight against insecurity and its attendant consequences in the state. He said the war is not limited to the Government or the security agencies alone, but it is a concern of everyone.
“We have to look inwards and flush out the bad eggs among us. Most of the atrocities perpetrated by the bandits at the grassroots indicate a connivance with informers who live among us in our communities . We must flush them out because we all know them”, the Governor charged the people.
“Henceforth, my administration has resolved not to have it easy on anyone arrested for the charge of being an informant to bandits anywhere in the state”, Matawalle announced.
All the visiting communities promised to renew their commitment to the attainment of lasting peace in their respective areas and also commended the efforts of the administration of Governor Matawalle for what it has so far been doing to end the spate of insecurity disturbing many parts of the state.
