Governor Dauda Lawal has reiterated his administration’s commitment to the security of the lives and properties of the people of Zamfara State.

On Tuesday, the governor attended the passing out parade of the Agro Rangers Corps of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, Zamfara State Command.

A statement by the spokesperson for the Governor, Sulaiman Bala Idris, revealed that the Agro Rangers are special marshals of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps who underwent intensive refresher training.

He added that the special marshals were trained in preparation for the consolidation operation in the fight against brigandage in Zamfara State.

During his speech at the passing out parade, Governor Lawal commended the NSCDC for their initiative. “This comes at a crucial time and aligns with our commitment to embracing effective measures in the fight against insecurity.

“We consider this a monumental step in addressing the challenges that have removed our communities of farming activities, agricultural practices, legitimate trades, and other means of sustenance in the State.

“The Government of Zamfara State identifies security and agriculture as major priority areas. We have initiated various measures to address the security challenges and thus boost agricultural production in the state. We, therefore, view this initiative by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps as a significant step in complementing the ongoing security measures we are taking as a government alongside security agencies working in the state.

“As a government, we will continue to cooperate with institutions, groups, and individuals in the fight against all forms of criminalities. We are committed to providing the support these institutions and individuals require to discharge your duties. The primary objective is to secure our communities and make them safe for socio-economic activities that will facilitate the development of the state and the people.

“I fervently hope that NSCDC’s initiative to create a special unit will yield long-lasting solutions to the security challenges faced, especially those affecting the agricultural sector.

“I have the singular honor and privilege to commission these special marshals. I wish you the very best in the discharge of your responsibilities. I pray for Allah’s protection and guidance.”

Earlier, the State Commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Zamfara State Command, Commandant Sani Mustapha, thanked Governor Lawal and the state government for supporting the training program and the Agro Rangers Corps in Zamfara. “Sir, your enormous support for the corps has earned us this fame. We sincerely thank you.” He said.

The Commandant explained further that the NSCDC is an outcome of peace and conflict resolution, created to consolidate peace in a troubled area that the Nigerian military has been able to capture.
