Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara on Sunday called on the state’s citizens to continue to be law-abiding and promised to execute massive developmental projects in 2023.
Mr Matawalle, in his new year message through his media aide, Zailani Bappa, said the first quarter of the year was an election year when all the citizens were required to conduct themselves with conscience and decorum.
“On our part, we have mapped out our plans to ensure that when elected into office for the second term.
“We shall not only complete ongoing projects across the state but vigorously pursue new ones in every electoral ward of the state,” the governor said.
He called for more concerted efforts from all the state’s citizens in 2023 to address the lingering socio-economic and security challenges.
”This ugly trend had adversely affected the ability of governments to impact more positively on the people.
“In spite of all these, we have been able to reach out to the grassroots in many more ways than most of our contemporaries elsewhere.
”The issue of security is topmost on our agenda, and by the special grace of God, we are succeeding beyond expectations,” Mr Matawalle added.
Mr Matawalle wished all the citizens a new and more prosperous year ahead.
