The chairman of Zamfara State Council of Chiefs, and Emir of Zamfaran Anka, Alhaji Attahiru Ahmad has urged Governor Abdul-Aziz Yari to stop unnecessary trips out of the state as a way of containing banditry in the state.
Speaking in his palace at Anka, while receiving Governor Yari on Sallah visit, the monarch said such frequent trips by the governor were quite unnecessary as the state was engulfed in insurgency.
According to him, Zamfara State is the constituency of the governor and he ought to stay within his domain to perform his constitutional role as governor.
“Yes, we know you’re chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, but note that, your are elected by the electorate of Zamfara not people of Kano, Kaduna, Enugu or any other state “, he added.
The monarch observed that the frequent trips of the governor had negative effects on the people of the state, especially, the massive killings in villages and towns of the state.
He stated that the presence of the governor in the state would help greatly in effective monitoring and assessment of the security situation in the state.
The monarch however, said the government had to take strong measures to end the killings, or people would adopt self defence by getting guns to fight back.
In his response, Governor Abdul-Aziz Yari expressed sympathy with the people of Anka emirate over the incessant attacks resulting to the death of many people.
He promised to collaborate with the federal government to end the killings.
