Things were so bad that it seemed there would be no end in sight, but Governor Matawalle’s strategic approach at ending insecurity in the state is earning him amazing reports from Nigerians and the good people of Zamfara.

One of those people who can no longer hide his joy at the latest development is this social media enthusiast, Yusuf Anka @ankaboy (on twitter).
Yusuf Anka in his post said; “A bandit group in the North of Tsafe has freed all the kidnapped victims including a lady who was taken a week ago. They were told to cater for themselves apparently because there was no means of communication for ransom demands and feeding them has also become difficult.”

This report many observers see as a good news after the report of the kidnapping of
Kaya Students under Maradun Local Government Area of the State, few days ago.

The Governor had in a swift response declared a new measure of curfew in the State so as to enable the security agencies to monitor closely suspicious movements.

The State Security Council met and deliberated on the need for further measures and resolved to impose a curfew in all the 14 local government areas of the state, starting from Wednesday, 1st September, 2021.

Some of the indigenes of state attested to the facts that the present governor of the state, has been doing exploits in tacking the activities of bandits in the state that hitherto held sway. But, saying that the Governor of Zamfara State has done well would be an understatement. Also saying that he has indeed set worthy examples for other states tackling insecurity is stating the obvious.

As it is now, Zamfara State should indeed serve as an example for how to tackle insecurity in the country. The governor realized that politics has no place in the security of lives and properties and this was the strategy employed by the governor and the result is what we are seeing today.

In his words on INEC and Party Candidates Bank assets,he said “My first concern is what is INEC’s definition of “bank assets?” Is it just bank account balances or more than that? If its just bank account balances, I doubt what practical use such information will be to INEC.

Secondly, I wonder whether INEC has the legal authority to request candidates to declare their “bank assets”. Yes the agency is authorised to monitor campaign expenditure but does that ipso facto confer on them the power to request bank balances? I’m not so sure of that. Code of Conduct Bureau and perhaps EFCC or ICPC may have such authority but its not clear that INEC does.”

Responding to the commission’s move to establish a finance monitoring teams,Otunba Opeyemi Agbaje says, “It is desirable and proper for INEC to establish mechanisms to monitor campaign finance and expenditure. The funds expended on political campaigns in Nigeria have become unreasonably huge and is now a critical component of Nigerian corruption and political dysfunction. I support any lawful effort to constrain and control this issue within the ambit of the law.”

The Ogun State Afenifere chairman emphasized that The EFCC and Deposit Money Banks have the responsibility to report suspicious financial transactions and he support leveraging this mechanism to monitor campaign finances…

“The Constitution guarantees freedom of association to all Nigerians so I can understand as many parties as possible seeking INEC registration. As a practical matter of course I recognise the operational, logistics and political difficulties inherent in having too many political parties. Nevertheless I believe every legitimate and conscientious political tendency should have the right to express themselves through a political party.”Otunba Agbaje maintained.

“I am excited at the news that youths and students top new voters registrations. I urge all youths, students, professionals, workers and indeed all Nigerians who are yet to register to do so. We can aim to register 12 million additional voters before the General Elections and take new registrations to over 20million!!! I know that’s an ambitious target but we need ambitious objectives and goals if we must reform and transform Nigeria.The Youths deserves encouragement to take up challenges and prepare for the future.
