The governor warned them to desist from engaging in any corrupt acts, but be forthright, honest, and fair to all in their local council areas, and bring about the desired development.
He disclosed that the recruited five thousand youths from the 249 districts as Zamfara Community Protection Guards, will be trained and provided with arms and modern crime-fighting equipment to fight the bandits and protect their communities.
