The Southern Nigeria Youth Movement has asked the Governor of Zamfara State Dauda Lawal to stop junketing across the globe and focus on providing security in the state.

The group said it wonders how the governor claims to be travelling abroad to attract investors to a state that is not safe for indigenes not to mention foreigners.

It pointed out that what the people of Zamfara State expect from the governor is to concentrate in providing fruits of democracy and to fulfil his campaign promises.

In a statement signed by Comrade Ikechukwu Nnamdi Okeke, its President, the group accused Lawal of abandoning the major responsibility of any responsible government which is to provide security to the people.

Parts of the statement read, “Zamfara boils on daily basis and in the news for killings, kidnapping for ransom, displacement of people from their ancestral homes by bandits who now operate unchallenged.

“Presently, Governor Lawal is out of the country while all the 14 Local Government Areas of the state are under heavy attacks by these criminal armed bandits forcing the State Government on the recommendation of the State Security Council on 3rd April 2024, to order restriction of movement along the state’s borders with Katsina and Sokoto from 7pm to 6am following resurgence of terrorists attacks on innocent people including Moslem worshippers who are being killed and kidnapped during morning and evening prayers in this glorious spiritual month of Ramadan in Gusau, the state capital.

“These terrorists attacks occur daily yet the governor’s praise singers blame Matawalle for failure to provide security of lives and property after living office over 10 months ago.

“We urge public office holders to live up to expectations and justify the confidence citizens reposed in them to build a strong, virile, united, progressive, prosperous and equitable democratic society.”
