FCT, Abuja-A pro-democracy group Zamfara Initiative for Good Governance after examining Governor Dauda Lawal’s administration in Zamfara state, passed a vote of no confidence in the governor

Calls for transparency, accountability

The group demanded that the internally generated revenue, IGR, of the state and the federal allocation for the state, among others be made public.

“This will promote integrity, accountability, honesty, transparency, and confidence in running the affairs of the state for the good of the people.

“As patriotic citizens, we must hold elected public officers accountable, as power resides in the people.”

The group urged Governor Lawal to take governance seriously, emphasizing his accountability to the people and God.

They highlighted the governor’s recent advertisement of “legacy projects,” which were renovations of existing infrastructure rather than new developments.

The group said:

“These projects include roads, hospitals, and schools previously constructed and commissioned by past administrations. Such whitewashing does not justify elaborate ceremonies or the waste of public funds.”

Bandits terrorizing 14 LGAs

They pointed out that Governor Lawal, during his campaign, pledged to provide security within 100 days in office, adding that a year later, the state remains under siege by armed bandits terrorizing all 14 Local Government Areas.

He said:

“Zamfara State is under siege of armed bandits who daily terrorize the 14 Local Government Areas of the State including Gusau, the state capital kidnapping people for ransom, killings, cattle rustling, imposition of levies and taxes before farmers could cultivate their lands, displacement of citizens from their communities and destruction of property.”

Zamfara constituents urge Abbas recall Zamfara rep

In another report, some constituents of the Kaura Namoda and Birnin Magaji federal constituency in Zamfara have notified Tajudeen Abbas, the speaker of the House of Representatives, of their plans to recall Sani Jaji.

You would recall that the All-Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara suspended Jaji on Friday, May 17 for alleged “anti-party activities.”
