Senator Kabiru Marafa
A senator representing Zamfara Central, Kabiru Marafa, has commended the state governor, Abdulaziz Yari, for calling on the Presidency to declare a state of emergency in the state.
The senator made the commendation in an interview with journalists in Gusau on Friday, saying that the stand had earned Mr Yari public respect.
Mr Yari had on Thursday expressed his support over calls for a state of emergency in Zamfara State.
The governor’s call was made in on the backdrop of continued killings and kidnapping in the state.
Mr Marafa said that with the call, citizens would appreciate the governor’s concerns for the security challenges facing communities in the state.
”I believe he has done what is right and that is not a failure but an indication of his willingness to bring lasting peace to the state,” the senator said.
