The Zamfara State Government says its stance on not negotiating with bandits remains final.
Commissioner of Information and Culture, Mannir Mu’azu Haidara, said this while rounding off familiarization visit to media organizations based in Lagos, at the weekend.
According to Haidara, Governor Dauda Lawal would support all State security agencies in the effort to rid Zamfara of rampaging bandits.
“For Governor Lawal, there is no going back on never negotiating with bandits and putting all commitment to making sure that people of Zamfara state live without the fear of being attacked. The top priority of Governor Dauda Lawal is making Zamfara state secure and free from years of insecurity,” Haidara said.
On governance, the commissioner said that the present administration is currently restoring sanity.

“Years of bad governance had left Zamfara behind in many ways. Now, Governor Dauda Lawal has taken the daunting task of creating a new Zamfara that will be on track of progress and development. It is a huge task that will require a lot of resources, but Gov. Dauda Lawal has the will and the massive support of the people of Zamfara state to make this possible,” the Commissioner said.
