Zamfara Gov Vows To Prioritise Security


Zamfara State governor, Dauda Lawal has reiterated his administration’s commitment on security to ensure the protection of lives and properties of the people.

The governor announced this yesterday at the passing out parade of Agro Rangers Corps, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC.

Governor Dauda revealed that the agro rangers are special marshals of NSCDC who underwent intensive refresher training.

He added that the special marshals were trained in preparation for the consolidation operation in the fight against brigandage in Zamfara State.

The governor commended NSCDC for its initiative. “This came at a crucial time and aligns with our commitment to embrace effective measures in the fight against insecurity.
“We consider this a monumental step in addressing the challenges that have removed our communities from farming activities, agricultural practices, legitimate trades and other means of sustenance.
“The government of Zamfara State identifies security and agriculture as major priority areas. We have initiated various measures to address the security challenges and thus boost agricultural production in the state.
“We, therefore, view this initiative by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps as a significant step in complementing the ongoing security measures we are taking as a government alongside security agencies working in the state.
“As a government, we will continue to cooperate with institutions, groups and individuals in the fight against all forms of criminalities. We are committed to providing the support these institutions and individuals require to discharge your duties.

“The primary objective is to secure our communities and make them safe for socio-economic activities that will facilitate the development of the state and the people,” he said.
Earlier, the State Commandant of NSCDC, Sani Mustapha thanked the governor and the state government for supporting the training programme and the Agro Rangers Corps in Zamfara.
