He said, Zamfara state which has been the worst hit by banditry activities in modern history in the North-western part of the country is now enjoying relative peace following the peace and reconciliation initiative he set up to dialogue with the bandits most of whom have now repented from their bad ways and are undergoing rehabilitation from various programmes also set up by the state government.
He remarked that although there still remained pockets of challenges regarding security, his administration is currently working tirelessly to consolidate the atmosphere of peace which has been regained within the period under review.
He recounted that the state government in partnership with stakeholders has now attained high level of understanding as Fulani and Hausas now fully intermingle freely like before.
