We Cannot Afford to Pay the New Minimum Wage – Nigerian Governors

The Governor of Zamfara, Abdulaziz Yari, has directed security agents to relocate to the villages where bandits and other criminals are disturbing the peace of the state.

Yari gave the directive during a news conference after a security stakeholders meeting in the state on Tuesday.

The governor expressed displeasure with the attitude of some security agents who he said lived in towns instead of villages where they are needed to combat criminals.

He said that the state government would assist the security agencies with logistics including accommodation to help their personnel adequately tackle criminal elements in the state.

Yari said that the absence of security agents where they are most needed has emboldened the bandits to attack and loot villages brazenly.

The governor described the decision to ban mining in the state as a “welcome development”, noting that illegal miners contribute nothing to the state’s coffers.

Promising the state government’s support for the Federal Government’s security interventions in Zamfara, he expressed optimism that the ban would help check the worsening security situation in the state.
