Governor Bello Matawalle has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for granting multiple requests for deployment of military personnel and installation of facilities across Zamfara state.
Matawalle gave the commendation at the swearing-in of two Special Advisers, Dr Sulaiman Shinkafi and Alhaji Anas Kaura on Wednesday.
He expressed gratitude to the security personnel for the ‘incredible victories’ they recorded recently on numerous fronts.
He also commended the authorities of the Niger Republic for maintaining a good working relationship with Nigeria in finding solutions to banditry in Zamfara and other states in the North-West zone, saying that this had yielded results.
However, Matawalle urged the new special advisers to demonstrate virtues of devotion, diligence and excellent leadership to achieve greatness for the state and bring prosperity to the people.
According to him, absolute loyalty, honesty and commitment to duty are required of the appointees at all times.
“People will be watching your actions with keen interest, and much expectation, especially now that we are in the new media age,” the governor said.
