Senator Kabiru Marafa has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to implement 8th Senate resolution on killings in Zamfara State.
He made the call while addressing newsmen shortly after he gave out 13 female orphans and his daughter for marriage in Kaduna on Saturday.
He said the implementation of the resolution on bandits killing in Zamfara will help curtail the spillover to neighbouring Katsina and Sokoto.
Marafa said: “The resolution was passed towards the end of the 8th National Assembly, where we called on the Federal Government to extend a small fraction of what has been done in North-East in Zamfara, by constituting a Presidential Initiative Committee on Zamfara State, give the Committee seed money of N10 billion and the same amount to be given every year for 10 years to assist the situation on the ground.”
He called on President Buhari to look at that Senate resolution of 2019 and implement it.
“When people are hungry and somebody gives them a N100,000 and AK47 rifle, they will follow the person, but if these orphans are properly catered for and trusted persons are appointed to manage the resources, we can tame the monster called banditry to the barest minimum,”
