In its determination to attain its cardinal goal which is the entrenchment of good governance, Zamfara State government is working strenuously to enlist the support of the Nigerian media.
To that effect, the commissioner of information and culture, Comrade Mannir Muazu Haidara alongside the permanent secretary of the ministry have embarked on official engagement with various media outlets in Kaduna, Abuja and Lagos.
During the visit which starts in Kaduna at the Head office of Nigeria’s most investigative newspaper and magazine Desert Herald, the commissioner in the presence of 24/7 Report, Fact Check news and other reputable online and national dailies said, “We are here as partners for progress to thank you for the objective reportage of various activities in Zamfara state especially during the electioneering period which saw the emergence of my boss His Excellency, Governor Dauda Lawal Dare”
Haidara, further, sought for continued and harmonious relationship with the company and other players in showcasing the lofty programs of Governor Dauda Dare.
He noted that it becomes imperative for the government to work side by side with the media in view of the massive plunder of the state resources which left it economically prostrate and at a tipping point.
“We believed, information is power, and a great weapon, for achieving good governance. Because of the deep respect he has for the media and its place in fostering national unity and cohesion, his excellency gave me the nod to reach out to all media outlets across the country.
“The governor is very keen to allow a seamless coverage of the activities of the state and its good people in his resolve to bring a paradigm shift to the old order and widen the governance space,” he said.
Also speaking, the permanent secretary of the ministry, Barrister Sani Nasarawa, commended the governor for the consistent support to the ministry in discharging its primary responsibility of sharing positive information about the state and his core goal of bequeathing a lasting legacy.
He appealed on the good people of Zamfara State to continue pray against the enemies of the state who are hell bent in in setting the hand of the clock backwards noting that the governor is working round the clock to ensure the restoration of peace to the state.
