Zamfara insecurity: Matawalle constitutes 36-man relief committee
Following the recent closure of markets, suspension of mobile networks, as well as the ban on petroleum products and foodstuff, Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has constituted a 36-man state relief and distribution committee to ease the hardships being experienced by the people in the state.
A release by the state commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Dosara at the weekend noted that the government has noticed with concern, the difficulties people are facing as a result of these restrictions.
To this end, the committee is expected to work out modalities for the distribution of the relief materials, which include rice, maize, millet, and guinea corn.
The committee which is headed by a former APC Gubernatorial Aspirant, Alhaji Aminu Sani Jaji, and 35 other members is also mandated to set up sub-committees at the local government level to ensure fair and equitable distribution of the essential commodities particularly to the less privileged persons at the grassroots.
The statement said, “the government also appreciate the commitment, relentless support, cooperation and prayers of the general public in tackling insecurity in the state.
“To this end, the government expresses profound gratitude and appreciation to Ulamas, Traditional rulers, Civil Servants, Security operatives and all those, too numerous to mention, who have contributed in their own respective ways in the search for a lasting solution to the wanton killings and destruction of lives and property.”
However, the statement warned members of the committee to carry out the distribution of the relief materials with the fear of Allah.
“Government would not take it lightly with anyone found wanting in the distribution exercise,” the statement concluded.
