The Zamfara State Government on Monday called on emirs to redouble their efforts in tackling security challenges in the state.
The State Deputy Governor, Sen. Hassan Nasiha, made the call at his office during the formal presentation of appointment letters to the newly enthroned emirs of Zurmi and Dansadau.
Nasiha said leaders of traditional institutions, as custodians of revered societal norms and values, had a greater role to play in ensuring a sustainable security atmosphere in their various Emirates.
He said that the two royal fathers, Sarkin Zamfaran Zurmi, Alhaji Muhammad Bello and Sarkin Kudun Dansadau, Alhaji Garba Muhammad, appointments were on merit.
He said their appointments were based on positive recommendations from their respective kingmakers and reports from other concerned institutions on their good moral behaviours and track records of service to humanity.
The deputy governor advised them to carry their subjects along with all sincerity of purpose and justice.
He also urged them to utilise all possible strategies in addressing lingering security issues and report promptly to the state government any security breach for necessary action.
In their separate speeches, the emirs, Bello and Muhammad thanked Gov. Bello Matawalle for the opportunity to realise their dreams of becoming emirs in their domains.
They assured government of their unalloyed support and cooperation to its policies and programmes for the rapid socio- economic development of the state.
