Bandits now sing your praise – Arewa group slams Gov Lawal of Zamfara

Arewa Youth for Peace and Security has accused Zamfara State Governor Dauda Lawal of abandoning the state’s security.

This comes after a recent social media post alleging that Bello Matawalle, Minister of Defence for State and immediate past governor of the State, “distributed foodstuffs” to the Ado Aliero-led bandits terrorising Zamfara.

The organisation accused Lawal of hyping instability during Matawalle’s administration to gain cheap attention and popularity, which catapulted him to power, and of abandoning his commitments to the people.

According to the group:

“Since Lawal assumed office, he is overwhelmed by the burden of leadership and has no clue on how to tackle banditry in the state,” the group said in a statement signed by its President, Abubakar Hassan Kankia.

“It is unfortunate that Governor Lawal who used insecurity in Zamfara State as propaganda to mislead the people during his campaign that he would restore security within his 100 days in office has now abandoned the people to their fate while he junkets across the globe leaving his constitutional duties of providing security and delivery of democracy dividends to citizens.

“As a face-saving device, Lawal is busy squandering public funds, sponsoring mischievous, fabricated and concocted lies against Matawalle to gain cheap publicity and sympathy from Zamfara people.

“Governor Lawal is confused, his clueless administration contributed to the current rise of insecurity in Zamfara State. It is heartbreaking watching video clips on social media where bandits praised him as the state has become a safe haven for them.

“These terrorists now want Lawal to remain in power beyond his tenure as they operate unchallenged.”
