Governor Dauda Lawal has reiterated his administration’s commitment to support the Zamfara State Security Trust Fund.

On Friday, the Zamfara Governor led the commissioning of the Security Trust Fund office complex in the state capital, Gusau.

A statement by the governor’s spokesperson, Sulaiman Bala Idris, said the Zamfara Security Trust Fund is chaired by the former Inspector General of Police, MD Abubakar.

According to the statement, the work done to bring the Office Complex up to standard exemplifies the Board of Trustees’ efficiency and commitment to fulfilling their mandate.

During the commissioning ceremony, Governor Lawal urged other states to establish similar funds, harmonize plans, and foster a regional approach to security issues.

He said: “As the Security Trust Fund settles into a structured environment to work, I urge collaboration with similar funds being set up by other states in our region. Together, we are stronger.

“The Fund has so much to do as it gets to work. An added area of focus for the Fund should also be the desensitization of our children and youth from the mindset of living in times of conflict and the simmering ethnic profiling that has sadly reared its head in some communities as a resultant effect of banditry. This is necessary for meaningful development to be sustained.

“Under the able and capable leadership of the Fund’s Chairman, IGP M.D Abubakar (Rtd), and other Eminent Members of the Board of Trustees, we look to your collective immediate and purposeful impact on the lives of our people as you all have always done throughout your personal and professional lives.

“We place that trust in you, for we know you all have the shoulders to carry such a burden. Thank you for your service and duty to your home state.

“A recurring decimal in my interactions wherever I go when these pockets of attacks happen is the commendable efforts of the Community Protection Guards that we have just formed in mitigating the severity and in search and rescue.

“We intend to continue our efforts at community engagement, continuous sensitization, and ensuring adherence to the rules of justice, fairness, and the code of conduct that all CPG members have sworn to.”
