Zamfara Govt. to transform agric. sector with N8 billion in 2020 — Matawalle

The Northern Youths Assembly (NYA) has advised the Zamfara Government to shelve its proposed N7 billion Government House project in the best interest of the people.

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Mannir Haidara the state’s NYA Chairman in Gusau on Monday.

The Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Bala Bello had last week announced plans for the project in the 2020 budget.

But Haidara noted that the project had no value for the state.

“I think that Zamfara doesn’t need a new Government House because all our past governors do not stay there.

“Even the current governor resides in his private residence, so why don’t government leave the project for the future.

“l can recall during the campaign of Gov. Alhaji Bello Matawalle that he promised various intervention programmes for the people of the state.

“As we are all aware, our state is currently bedevilled with serious security challenges, let us, therefore, propose projects that will have direct bearing on the people, especially victims of security challenges in the state,” he said.

Haidara said NYA is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) working towards ensuring transparency and accountability in all Northern States.

He urged the state government to focus on identifying ways to improve revenue generation in the state instead of proposing unnecessary projects. (NAN)
