Hey there, middle schoolers! Today, we’re going to talk about something serious happening in Zamfara State. The governor, Dauda Lawal, has some important information to share with us. He says that he has evidence that the Federal Government has been secretly negotiating with bandits. Let’s find out more!
Recently, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris, accused the Zamfara State Government of playing politics with security. But Governor Lawal is not happy about this accusation. He believes that the Federal Government is involved in secret negotiations with bandits, and he has proof!
Governor Lawal’s Senior Special Assistant on media, Sulaiman Bala Idris, released a statement to explain the situation. According to the statement, the Zamfara State Government asked the Federal Government about these secret negotiations. They wanted to know why the negotiations were happening without involving the State Government and the heads of security agencies in the state.
The governor claims that they have evidence of what happened during these negotiations. They know where they took place and who was involved. But he is disappointed because the Minister of Information discredited their claim without even checking if it was true. Governor Lawal believes that the minister should have worked with the relevant authorities to find out the truth.
The Zamfara State Government wants to make it clear that they respect protocol and established authority. They don’t want to start naming the Federal Government agents involved in these secret negotiations in the media. Instead, they want the minister and the authorities to investigate and confirm the authenticity of their claims.
According to Governor Lawal, it is the individuals leading these secret negotiations who are politicizing the issue of insecurity, not the State Government. They want to make sure that everyone understands this important distinction.
So, there you have it, middle schoolers! The governor of Zamfara State has evidence of secret negotiations between the Federal Government and bandits. He believes that the minister should have taken their claims seriously and investigated them properly. It’s important to understand that the State Government is not the one politicizing the issue of insecurity. They just want the truth to come out and for the right people to take action.
