Gov Matawalle swears in administrators for Zamfara LGs

Zamfara state Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle has sworn in 14 new Local Government administrators and warned them on the need to work hard in securing their respective areas from the menace of banditry.

He said that following the dissolution of the last set of administrators at the local government level, it had become necessary to reconstitute another one until the security situation improves to pave way for elections into the local government councils.

Gov Matawalle said the situation in local governments requires their total commitment and uprightness which are some of the qualities considered in their selection.

He warned them not to disappoint the confidence of the state government and the people as he promised to support them in the quest to bring an end to banditry.

Governor Matawalle charged them to uphold the truth and ensure that his administration delivers its mandate of securing the state to pave way for accelerated development.
