The Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle has picked hole in the no-fly zone order imposed on the state
Acccording to the Governor, the imposition shows that the federal government lacks the understanding of the security situation in the state.
Following issues of insecurity in the state, President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered a no-fly zone in the State and banned illegal mining following issues of insecurity in the state.
Buhari imposed the order during the Security Council meeting in Abuja, yesterday.
The disclosure was made to newsmen after the meeting by the National Security Adviser (NSO), retired Maj. -Gen. Babagana Monguno
Matawalle expressed disappointment over the decision by while receiving hosting the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, NGF, Kayode Fayemi in the state.
He said: “It seems the security council doesn’t understand the nature of the security problems in Zamfara state but if they decided to take such action, let them go ahead.
“I’m not afraid of anybody and the problem of insecurity in the state predated my administration.
“Nigerians are waiting to see the outcome of the security council resolution to see if these bandits would be crushed.
“If the federal government fails to crush them after this resolution, then Nigerians will understand that they only sat and serve themselves tea, nothing more.”
