Addressing newsmen in Gusau, Zamfara State capital, APC’s Publicity Secretary, Yusuf Idris said the allegations were part of the PDP’s plan to derail the good of the Matawalle’s government to move the state forward, after several attempts by the PDP in the state to reverse the defection of the governor to APC.

“The frailed muscle PDP having exhausted their antics felt they can still fool the good people of Zamfara by placing Govrernor Matawalle and the APC in bad light on the issue of security where they seem to assert that the governor has not done enough”, he added.

According to him, the people of Zamfara are living witness of the effort and resources being invested by the govrernment in the security aspect.

The APC’s spokesman explained that about 300 brand new Hilux vans were given to security agencies to ease patrol and operations in addition to regular release of funds to the personnel as incentive which has in turn decimated the hitherto wanton attacks.

“The first governor to set up a Ministry of Security and Home Affairs and approved the recruitment and training of 500 youths from each of the 17 Emirates of the state to augumate fight against criminality in the state was Zamfara”, h e stressed.

He wondered why the PDP was not happy with the feat being attained by the Governor Matawalle and the APC in addressing insecurity in the state a situation that may raise suspicion of thier support to the crimes.

According to him, instead of recognizing the effort of the governor for going to Niger Republic to discuss security issues with the authorities, but having been clouded by their envy and mischieve, the PDP stated also that it was not the right time, but rather alleged that the governor was in Niger Republic to enjoy himself.
