The former Borno Governor, Sen. Ali Modu-Sheriff lauded gov. Bello Matawelle on security and predicted an end to terrorism and banditry in parts of the country.
This is at the wake of Zamfara State Government battles to tackle the menace.
Modu-Sheriff made this assertion when he paid a courtesy visit to Governor Bello Matawalle at the state Government House in Gusau, to commiserate with the government and people of the state over the recent loss of lives and properties arising from the activities of bandits in the state.
According to Modu-Sheriff, “The peace accord and reconciliation process earlier initiated by the governor has made northern states enjoy relative peace.
”The measures taken against all terrorist enclaves will further clear the way for peace and tranquility to reign in the state.”
The former lawmaker also lauded the efforts of the Zamfara Government towards ensuring stability in spite of the security challenges.
”Borno and Zamfara share similar security challenges of terrorist attacks,” he said.
Recall that Modu Sheriff who was governor of Borno State between 2003 and 2011 has severally been accused of being the one who gave life to the Boko Haram sect, an allegation he has also denied on many occasions.
