Insecurity: Speaker Gbajabiamila visits Zamfara today, Sunday

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila will on Sunday July 14, 2019 visit Zamfara State as part of his efforts to assess security challenges in some states across the country.

During the visit, the Speaker is expected to travel to some specific Local Government Areas in the state that are most affected by activities of bandits and kidnappers.

The Speaker, who will be in company of some members of the House, will also meet specific individuals such as government officials, including the state governor, community and religious leaders.

The Speaker’s visit would afford him the opportunity to see the situation on ground, return to the House and together with members make necessary recommendations to the Executive arm of government.

It is expected that the Executive arm will leverage on the assessment of the House on the security situations in the affected states and take further action.

After his emergence as Number 4 Citizen, Speaker Gbajabiamila promised to visit the states that have been facing security challenges.

This is in line with the Speaker’s campaign slogan themed ‘Nation Building: A Joint Task.’

After Zamfara State, the Speaker will also visit other states such as Katsina, Borno, Taraba, Adamawa, Benue, among others.
