Governor Mohammed Matawalle of Zamfara State has said the United States of American Government has removed Zamfara from the list of terrorists’ states in Nigeria.
The governor said this while addressing the All Progressives Congress’ supporters from Maradun Local Government Area who defected to the People Democratic Party at the Government House in Gusau on Sunday.
Matawalle said, “Zamfara State was one of the states in Nigeria where the United States of American Government warned its people to avoid visiting.”
The governor, however, said the American government had last week exempted the state from dangerous places in Nigeria following the effort of his administration to bring an end to the activities of bandits and kidnappers.
He, therefore, appealed to the opposition parties to join hands with his government to sustain the peace for the rapid development of the state.
The governor, however, said, “I am aware of the moves by some politicians to create problems in our state for their selfish interest because they are not comfortable with the success my government recorded within a few months of taking over.”
