It’s definitely another feather to his cap as hardworking Governor of Zamfara State, His Excellence Dr Bello Mohammed Matawalle MON will be honoured at Africa Voice Magazine Award in Lagos as Best Governor of The Year (PEACE AND SECURITY.
Notwithstanding the stiff political attacks from the opposition, especially his predecessor, the non-stop achieving Governor has vowed not to derail in his promise to transform Zamfara State from the moribond state as left by former Governor Yari.
Hitherto, the story of Zamfara state was a gory tale of tears, blood, mass killing, kidnapping, reprisals and sorrow. It seemed complex, extreme and unsurmountable.
The sincere efforts, sagacity and political will of governor Matawalle in the last few months since he took over power has simplified all the complexity of conflict. This as ushered in a new dawn of relative peace.
The deconflicting mechanism and structures for peace building the governor has put in place high lights his sincerity of purpose, self confidence and pragmatism.
Every war afterall ends on the conference table. Willy nilly, he has dragged the protagonist, actors, undercover partners-in-crime and even ghost agent provocateurs to the negotiating table. Many are still resistant and mini sub-plots abound. But the direction is clear.
Governor Bello Matawalle deserves the support of all Zamfarans, Nigerians and all people of goodwill worldwide.
The battle to make Zamfara state an Oasis of peace, tranquillity and industry is a battle of no retreat no surrender. All hands must be on deck.
