Gov. Masari inaugurates N1.4bn new Zamfara Assembly complex

By Abubakar Ahmed

Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State on Wednesday inaugurated the new state-of-the-art Zamfara State House of Assembly complex, built at a cost of more than 1.4 billion naira.

The new building included the administrative block, the house room, the committee rooms, the restaurant, the gas station, the clinic, the mosque and the perimeter fence.

Masari, who was the special guest of the event held in Gusau, urged the residents of Zamfara to rally with the state administration for more development projects.

He also urged the people of the Northwest to help end the security problems in the region.

“The threats posed by insecurity in our region demand that all hands be on the bridge, as Hausa and Fulani speakers are closely linked.

“If we don’t come together to live in peace and harmony, we will end up destroying our homes and communities ourselves,” Masari warned.

He assured that the governors of the area would continue to develop ways to deal with the security concerns until peace is restored.

In his speech, Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara said that the state assembly complex was started and executed by his administration at a cost of 1.4 billion naira.

“With these structures in place, our honorable members of the State House of Assembly could operate in a serene environment, with all the facilities they need.

“I wish to assure our honorable members of the State Assembly of the support of my administration in the efficient discharge of your duties at all times.

“I appreciate the cordial relationship between you and the executive since my arrival two years ago. This cordiality is largely responsible for the appreciable successes we have had so far.

“However, despite the friendly atmosphere, I would like to invite you to redouble your efforts to come up with effective legislation to further improve the well-being of our people,” Matawalle said.

Earlier, Zamfara assembly chairman Alhaji Nasiru Magarya, who praised the governor for providing the facility, pledged to work with the executive for the good of the people.

Magarya said that in the past two years, the assembly has passed 25 bills, while 13 more are in the process of being drafted.

The speaker called on the federal government to redouble its efforts to address the security challenges in the country. (NAA)
