From Maiharaji Altine,  Gusau

The Publicity Secretary of Zamfara state All Progressive Congress (APC), Alhaji Yusuf Idris  has reacted to a claim on the attack of one Shamsu Kasida, describing it as a falacy from Supporters of former Governor Yari and Senator Kabiru Marafa.

In a statement, Idris said the supporters of former Governor Yari and Senator Kabiru Marafa got it wrong to accuse Governor Bello Mattawale and his led APC of attacking the said Shamsu Kasida.

Idris said, “We at the Zamfara state office of the All Progressives Congress APC are highly surprised over the claim by some certain groups that there exist two factions of our great party in the state with each aligning itself to the two former  political leaders of ex-governor Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar and former Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa”.

“Most worrisome is when these claimants begin to assert frivolities against the party leadership and government in the state, especially over the contradictory alleged attack on one Shamsu Kasida whose said attack came under two versions’.

“That he was attacked as the victim and that he attacked someone else as the scoundrel”.

“It should be clearly noted that one of the cardinal duties of the state government is the protection of people’s lives and property”.

He maitained that the administration in the state under His Excellency, Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle MON has been doing its best to ensure that the whole state was not only free from the fangs of bandits and other terrorists making life unbearable to our communities at the rural level, but ensuring that even small time criminals such as shop and house breakers do not have a place in the state.

This effort acccording to Idris has recently led to the arrest of an anthropophagus in the state capital, Gusau.

Idris stressed that for anyone alleging that the people oriented government of Matawalle had a hand in the attack of Shamsu Kasida was uncultured and irresponsible.

“The good news here is, since a press conference by one Bakyasuwa said they knew the attackers, we will want them to either lead the police in arresting them or the Bakyasuwas should take the matter to court’. 

“Henceforth, we will not allow such irresponsible and clumsy way these people drag the governor’s nor the party’s name in their mischievous ways”. Concluded Idris.
