On Wednesday 31st January 2024, the executive governor of zamfara state Dauda Lawal Dare, PhD, commissioned and inaugurated a new security out fit code name: community protection Guards.
Though, this is the third in the series of putting these kinds of local security out fit as his two predecessors had established similar but with different code names.
Executive Governor, has sent invitation to many of us to make the event all inclusive, indeed it is an effort to ensure that every indigene of zamfara state and beyond is involved, this kind gesture is to extend his hand of solidarity to all.
Few months ago in my interview with vision FM Abuja. I mentioned that the president Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu by his appointment of two minister from north west in the ministry of Defense he has handed over to us our destiny in our hands.
Our prayers is that, the governors and the minister will join hands to ensure that these banditary and all forms of criminality in the region are defeated.
All these objectives need strong support from the federal government our constitution is very clear on the issue of security.
The security of the nation is rest on the president who is also the commander in chief of the armed forces of the federal republic of Nigeria.
I made a suggestion that the fire arms act be amended so that the governors can apply through the president to grant them license to purchase enough Ak 47 for the use of this kind of security out fit. The training and management of these fire arms be left in the Brigade commonder within the location of the state. Secondly, I also suggested retired but able members of legends be census in each local government to be included in this out fits.
On behalf of my entire family, I congratulates Governor Dauda Lawal Dare PhD, for these well thought out initiative.
May Allah in his mercy destine that this will bring to the end of bandits and banditary and all other forms of criminality in the state. In addition to this inauguration his excellency may direct prayers be conducted in every mosque on Friday in all the jumua mosques in the state.
Indeed, we have intended to attend the events but many economic conditions stood on our way.
please, your excellency Accept my best wishes and prayers and unreserved apology. I regret my inability to attend this all important and all inclusive events.
