Meanwhile, Zamfara state governor, Alhaji Abdul’Aziz Yari Abubakar has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the deployment of additional troops to the state to tackle insecurity bedevilling the state particularly in the rural communities.

A statement by the Special Adviser, Public Enlightenment, Media and Communication, Alhaji Ibrahim Dosara said the decision by the federal government to deploy 1000-Strong Military Force to the State would ensure quick tackling of the incessant attacks and killings of innocent people in the rural farming communities of the state and boost economic activities of the people.

Also ahead of the 2019 governorship elections, the Mada ethnic group and one of the major tribes in the state said it had been relegated to the background in the governorship race, demanding that it be allowed to produce the next governor.

The people who are majorly found in the northern senatorial districts, said they are tired of the deputy governorship slot which they have enjoyed in the last 12 years running.
