Masari host 5 North-west governors in Katsina over insecurity
Governors of Kaduna, Kebbi, Sokoto, Katsina, and Zamfara states are to meet on Thursday in Katsina to strategize and strengthen efforts in tackling security issues in their states.
Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara, who made the disclosure in Gusau, said the five governors will review the various approaches so far taken at individual state levels with a view to fine-tuning, restrategizing and strengthening them for enduring peace.
According to the Governor, President Muhammadu Buhari is happy with the gradual attainment of peace in Zamfara under his leadership.
“The peace and reconciliation initiative I introduced in Zamfara has yielded good results which earned us commendation from the president because, in the last one month, the state only recorded one attack where sadly one person was killed.
“This peaceful approach is expected to take center stage at our discussion during the meeting because it is a known fact globally now that through a peaceful process, a lot can be achieved,” he noted.
Matawalle who was one time the Chairman House of Representatives Committee on Security explained that he had brought some of the experiences he acquired from that committee to bear on the Zamfara situation.
