The Zamfara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has cautioned the state’s Commissioner for Rural Development and Cooperatives, Alhaji Abubakar Abdullahi against setting the state on collision course with the federal government after he criticized President Muhammadu Buhari administration for its poor handling of security situation in the state.
The party in a statement by the state’s Secretary, Alhaji Hashimu Modomawa, said contrary to comments credited to Abdullahi, the President has done very well in handling the issue of banditry in the state. He listed the establishment of 1 Brigade of Nigeria Army, 207 Quick Response Group of the Nigeria Airforce and Joint Task Force (JTF) under Operation Hadarin Daji as some of the efforts put in place by the president in dealing with the security situation.
“The commissioner is a member of the APC and part of Governor Matawalle’s cabinet due to the all-inclusive nature of the government as initiated by the Governor to cater for all political opinion.
“This privilege should not be abused rather should be seen as an avenue to bring peace and developments in the state.
“Such utterances by the commissioner are capable of undermining the objective of the all-inclusive government and set the State and Federal government on a collision course” Modomawa said.
