Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state has said that he is ready to resign as governor if that will bring peace to the state.
The state has been adversely affected by bandit activities.
In an interview with Channels TV on Wednesday, March 3, Governor Matawalle responded when asked if he is intimidated by the Federal Government’s declaration of a ‘No-Fly Zone’ in Zamfara.
Responding, he said
“I am ready to accept any solution that will bring security to my state.
I am not intimidated. If I know that my resigning as a governor will make the people sleep with their two eyes closed, I can resign. I am ready to do what will bring security. I am not power-hungry. I have been having sleepless nights to protect the people of Zamfara State.”
